Paper Abstract

Wilkerson: As we begin the panel discussion on the Current Status of Plastics for Optics, the panel members will be considering both the present status and what they expect to occur in the next two to three years. On our panel we have Brian Welham, Vice-President of U.S. Precision Lens. They are certainly one of the largest, if not the largest, plastic fabricators, and they specialize in plastics only. Brian was Director of Engineering at Bausch & Lomb Special Products Division and he spent 16 years there before joining U.S. Precision Lens. Then there is Joe Berg from Berg Industries, John Lytle from M.U. Engineering and Mfg., Bob Jans of Rohm and Haas, and Richard Griskey of the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee. I am Gary Wilkerson of Wilkerson Associates.
