About the AuthorAbout the AuthorDr. A. Ray Hilton, Sr., is known worldwide through publications describing his efforts in chalcogenide glasses. He serves as Chairman of the Board and Technical Director of Amorphous Materials, Inc. (AMI). Under Dr. Hilton’s direction and guidance, a process was developed to compound and cast high-purity homogeneous plates of chalcogenide glasses carried out under high vacuum in high-purity quartz containers. Thousands of glass blanks required for government FLIR systems produced in the 1980s for the Army were supplied by AMI. AMI is currently developing new glass compositions for lenses for use in inexpensive infrared cameras.
