Optics Industry News and Advancements
The Optics Cleanroom Industry supports the environmental cleanroom and controlled environmental systems for the optics industry. The Optics Industry is the branch of physics that includes the behavior of light and the properties of light. This includes the way that light interacts with matter and the construction of optics instruments, optics products and optics technology that use light or detect light. Light is an electromagnetic wave which is very similar to other forms of electromagnetic radiation, like: x-rays, microwaves and radio waves.

Modern manufacturing is being revolutionized by the use of optics, which can both improve current manufacturing capabilities and enable new ones. Below are some of the uses of Optics in the industrial and product manufacturing landscapes:
- Light is often used to process or probe materials remotely, sometimes through windows isolating harsh or vacuum environments.
- Light can be used to induce photochemistry, for example, in photolithography to produce submicron features in thin films of photoresist or in rapid prototyping where liquid polymers are solidified by lasers to form a three-dimensional piece from a computer-aided design database.
- Light can cast images, making it possible to inspect a part or use the image to guide the working tool to the correct area of a production piece.
Optics has reached into every aspect of manufacturing and promises to increase in use with improvements in speed, control, precision, and accuracy. Numerous optical techniques are used throughout industry and are critical to the manufacture of such diverse and basic products as semiconductor chips, roads and tunnels, and chemicals. Optical techniques, grouped by function, fall into two broad classes:
Performing manufacturing: Light interacts directly with the finished or intermediate product to change its physical properties, as in the case of photolithography or materials processing.
Controlling manufacturing: Optics is used to provide information about a manufacturing process, as in the chemical industry’s use of optical sensors for in-line process control, or to inspect a manufactured
