The Year in Review, and a Look Ahead It's always good to look back, if briefly, over the year gone by and take stock, since so often the "busyiness" of business can get in the way of a long-term perspective. We have mentioned some of these milestones in earlier newsletters (http://www.kineticriver.com/_blog/Kinetic_River/post/end-of-summer-newsletter/), such as the introduction of the Danube II and our capacity expansion. Taken together, the various accomplishments we achieved as a company make us proud and very thankful for our many supporters--clients, partners, and suppliers. We w ..

Optical Design Review Checklist: Components

Tuesday, July 08, 2014
Bookmark and Share
In our technical analytical work with clients at Kinetic River, there are many questions that come up again and again--for example, in design reviews. We have developed a series of checklists that we use to evaluate the nature and quality of technology and intellectual property. This example illustrates our design review process for the case of optical components: the general approach is to get the broad picture first, then drill down to the specific technical attributes. By the end, we have enough information to put the component in context, and dive deeper into relevant technical details ..

Titled Advances in Optical Design, the talk focused on the emerging paradigm of parametric design. Fig. 1. Parametric design in architecture. Parametric design has been popularized by eye-popping architectural feats such as Frank Gehry's Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago's Millennium Park, and Herzog & de Meuron's "Bird's Nest" National St ..
