Custom, high-precision optical components are found everywhere, but getting them produced at mass comes with astronomical lead times and costs that are out of reach for many companies. <a href=”https://www.momentumoptics.com/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Momentum Optics</a>, a startup in cohort 4 of the <a href=”https://luminate.org/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Luminate</a> accelerator, is making custom optics more accessible, helping eliminate the barriers to high-volume production while delivering nanometer precision.
Founder and CEO of Momentum Optics, Jeremy Goeckeritz, PhD, shares how his company merged the fields of semiconductors, MEMs (micro-electromechanical systems) processing, and optics to develop its smart manufacturing tool. He describes the unique challenges of starting an optical manufacturing company, his passion for entrepreneurship, and the importance of leadership that’s receptive to other ideas.
