My client is a world leader in the R&D and manufacturing of complex optical equipment and laser devices and now seek an experienced R&D Laser Engineer


  • Develop and evaluate manufacturing processes by applying knowledge of product design, fabrication, assembly, tooling, and materials; conferring with equipment vendors; and soliciting feedback from operators.
  • Resolve daily issues that impede fulfilment of production orders.
  • Improve manufacturing efficiency by analyzing and planning workflow, space requirements, and equipment layout
  • Plan and implement projects that apply a systematic approach to problem-solving for processes, newly manufactured laser systems
  • Assure product and process quality by designing testing methods; testing finished- product and process capabilities; establishing standards; and validating manufacturing processes.
  • Prepare product and process reports by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information and trends.
  • Incorporate optical, mechanical and electrical sub-assemblies into systems unit with test
  • Utilize beam expanders, lenses and mirrors to achieve desired system specifications
  • Verify laser beam quality using energy meter, burn paper, electrical multi-meter and vision system analysis
  • Effectively apply statistical process controls (SPC) to monitor, analyse and refine processes to reduce variability
  • Define key parameters to be monitored based upon criticality to system performance
  • Apply optical analysis tools, i.e. ZEMAX, to determine where a design element, test, or technique is incorrect
  • Assume responsibility to train production and technician staff when a new laser sub-system (considered of a laser, beam-forming optics and polarization components) is introduced
  • Provide immediate response to technical issues on a system-by-system basis


  • PhD in Optics, Laser, Physics, Electrical Engineering or equivalent
  • Experience with manufacturing laser systems and assembly and test of electro-mechanical and electro-optical systems
  • Expert knowledge of solid state and amplified lasers
  • Strong troubleshooting skills.
  • Deep knowledge of precision optics including lenses, polarization optics and equivalent
  • Experience with beam propagation measurement (ModeMaster, Spiricon M2-200, BeamScan)
  • Familiarity with SPC tools for process monitoring
  • Ability to read and understand mechanical drawings and electrical wiring diagrams.
