Launch Team Associate to Teach Optics Course for Sales Professionals at SPIE Optics + Photonics

spie-optics-photonics-logo.gifHeading to SPIE Optics + Photonics this month? Don't miss these presentations by Damon Diehl, Launch Team technical writer and Ph.D. Two other members of the Launch team will also be at the show, and we welcome the chance to meet with you


Course 1: The Very Least You Need to Know About Optics

This course introduces non-engineers, particularly sales professionals, to the central principles of optics. Focusing on visual examples rather than mathematics, the course teaches the concepts of optical reflection, refraction and diffraction. It also serves as an introduction to the workings of essential optical elements such as lenses, mirrors and prisms.

“This crash course will give sales professionals the tools they need to understand most technical optical presentations,” Diehl said. “With the basics in hand, they will be well-positioned to study more specialized topics related to the industries they serve.”

Monday, Aug. 29, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.


Course 2: Critical Skills for Compelling Research Proposals 

This is a popular and highly interactive course that addresses “proposal phobia.” Students learn to harness the enthusiasm for their research to construct a strong proposal from the inside out.

Wednesday, Aug. 31, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
