August 11, 2011
Today I worked on extra research for my presentation. The intern group went on a field trip to CVI Melles Griot, a custom optics manufacturing company. They design and build optical trains to meet customer requirements. This includes both the lenses and the barrel that holds the lenses. The tour was interesting, but very short. Apparently, the company has been downsized since the last time the group visited, five years ago. The afternoon was pretty much the same as the time before the field trip, working on the presentation. In general, the internship is starting to wind down. The college interns have their last day on Friday, where they present their research findings.
