Optical Design

Ronian received his B.S. in Optics and B.A. in Physics in 1997, and a M.S. in Optics in 1999, from the University of Rochester. He has more than twenty years of professional experience, and his optical designs have included objectives, eyepieces, x-ray-to-visible digital imaging relays, machine vision and classical illumination optics, and fluorescence detection systems for DNA analysis (such as real-time PCR and digital PCR).
