Significant research is conducted during the school year and over summer months at the Center for Optics Manufacturing (COM) by undergraduates. Projects are designed with short- and long-term goals, to be carried out by students using advanced CNC machines and sophisticated metrology tools. Five activities are described with emphasis on the individuals doing the work.
