Boston Micromachines’ Dr. Thomas Bifano to Deliver Keynote at the UC Center for Adaptive Optics Fall Retreat

Cambridge, Mass., October 18, 2010 – Boston Micromachines Corporation, a leading provider of MEMS-based deformable mirror (DM) products for adaptive optics systems, announced today that Dr. Thomas Bifano, the company’s Chief Technology Officer and Cofounder, will be the keynote speaker at the UC Center for Adaptive Optics Fall Retreat 2010 at the UCLA Conference Center at Lake Arrowhead, California. The session “CfAO Impact on MEMS DM Development” will be presented on Thursday, October 28th at 8:00 am.

Bifano brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this topic. In addition to his role at Boston Micromachines, he also serves as Director of the Boston University Photonics Center, and Professor in the Manufacturing Engineering Department at Boston University, with a joint appointment in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering.

His research focuses on developing useful devices with the aid of novel precision-manufacturing technologies. Currently active projects center on development of an advanced class of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for optical and biomedical applications. Recent highlights include the development of a MEMS deformable mirror system that improves image resolution in microscopes and telescopes and a segmented deformable mirror for optical encryption and optical computing.
