Dave Coult of Agere Systems will speak on “Optical Thin Films in Dense Wave Division Multiplexing” 7:30 p.m. Thursday in room 400 of Alumni Hall of Engineering.

Sponsored by the student chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Tri-State Section of the Optical Society of America, the talk is free and open to the public.

Coult will discuss using thin-film narrowband filters to meet the ever-increasing demand for communications bandwidth.

He holds a B.S. in optical engineering from the University of Rochester and an M.S. in materials science from Lehigh University. Coult has almost 30 years of experience in the design and fabrication of optical thin films. He joined AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1980 to design and fabricate optical filters for early wavelength division multiplexing systems and holds five patents in that and related areas. He is senior manager of the InP Chip Fabrication and Garnet Technology Engineering Department at Agere.
