Our CTO has been recognized for her achievements in optical design
Our CTO, Marta de la Fuente Puente, has been selected as a Fellow of SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. Specifically, she has been recognized for achievements in optical systems design.
Her novel applications in this field include extensive use of diffractive optical elements for pupil aberration control and bispectral systems as well as the first use of low-cost wavefront coding using coma.
At ASE, de la Fuente designs and develops custom optoelectronic and optomechanical systems, precision optics, and prototypes. Prior to her ASE role, de la Fuente managed Indra’s optical design group, designing night vision systems, microscopes, thermal cameras, space optics, and airborne systems, work that was R&D-focused and results-oriented, with deep knowledge in the defence and security markets.
An SPIE Member since 2005, de la Fuente is an active Society committee member and conference participant. When featured in the 2009 SPIE Women in Optics Planner, she noted, “Developing a system from specifications, optimizing the configuration, and finally measuring it in the lab is something incredible and very gratifying to me.” De la Fuente was a member of SPIE Board of Directors 2008-2010, a role she’s currently reprising through 2021.
At ASE Optics we are proud and fortunate to have such a talented member in our team.
