AOM was founded by Drs. Jim Burge and Chunyu Zhao to provide our customers with design and analysis of optical null tests of aspheric surfaces. In particular, we provide the Computer Generated Hologram - the key part in the interferometric null test of an aspheric surface. Dr. Zhao currently runs the day to day business of AOM.
Here are the founders' biographies:
Dr. Zhao has over fifteen years’ experience in optical engineering, particularly in the design, analysis and building of optical testing systems. He authored the software package, CGHEncoder, that converts the CGH design data to fabrication data. He also authored another software package, ZBR, for stitching sub-aperture measurement maps of a surface or wavefront into a full aperture map.

Dr. Burge is currently a Professor at the University of Arizona, College of Optical Sciences, where he leads a group of researches, engineers and students working on fabrication and testing of large aspheric mirrors (see www.optics.arizona.edu/loft.) He has authored over 200 papers and given dozens of invited talks around the world.
