ASE Adds Jennifer Rouke to Optical Engineering Team

With the addition of Jennifer Rouke, Ph.D., to its staff, ASE Optics increases its capabilities in systems analysis and modeling for imaging systems. The company provides contract optical engineering and custom lens assembly manufacturing for companies worldwide.

ASE President Christopher Cotton said: "Dr. Rouke's extensive systems engineering experience will grow both our team's capacity and our ability to partner on larger programs. Her recent work in alignment modeling for Earth imaging systems and remote sensors is tremendously valuable to some of our current astronomy projects."

Rouke said: "Joining ASE Optics brings me back into the lab and will let me bring some of my thesis work in interferometry and optical measurements to bear. Working with this team and with this range of customer projects is an exciting opportunity."

Rouke has a doctorate in optics from the University of Rochester. Her theoretical and experimental experience at the U of R Institute of Optics included work with gradient index (GRIN) materials, fabrication of gradient-index glass, interferometric measurement of index profiles and wavefronts, derivation of birefringent GRIN ray tracing equations, and modeling of fringe patterns.

Rouke's recent design projects have included modeling for precision mirror alignment in WorldView-2 and GeoEye-1 Earth imaging systems.

ASE Optics was founded in 1994 to provide optical engineering support for companies who couldn't find, couldn't afford, or couldn't justify having an optical engineer on staff.
