Improve Throughput and Damage Threshold in Your UV System

We invite you to join this 45-minute webinar presented by Dr. Matthew Dabney, Principal Engineer at Edmund Optics. At the end of this webinar, participants will have a strong understanding of:

  • Why laser-induced contamination manifests in UV systems and how it impacts performance
  • Real examples of these effects observed in long-term UV experiments
  • Mitigation strategies and cleaning techniques to potentially recover contaminated optics

Dr. Matthew Dabney is a Principal Laser Engineer at Edmund Optics. He has over 30 years of experience researching how lasers interact with materials. He also fabricated and qualified most of the optics on the Hubble Telescope. Matthew joined Edmund Optics in 2019 and has established a laser lab to research the laser damage threshold (LDT) of various materials. He has published over 30 scientific papers on topics ranging from pulsed laser deposition of novel transparent conducting oxides, laser nucleation and growth of silicon, the safe use of Class 4 lasers in industrial settings, and developing a robust LDT testbed. Matthew holds a master's and PhD degree in materials science from Colorado School of Mines.
