We believe that controlled light is valuable, 
and stray light is wasteful.  

Our mission is to apply thin-film solutions to help our customers get the right photons to the right place at the right time.

We set out to write our mission statement which would resonate with our employees, fellow optics geeks, and regular folks – regardless of their optics knowledge. We think we hit the nail on the head, but all the same, would like to take a moment to dive deeper into what our mission statement means to us, and how it connects our technology focus (coatings) with our business focus (moving efficiently and effectively).

We are big believers in Stephen R. Covey’s 2nd habit: “Begin with the End in Mind “. And that is where we finish our mission statement, connecting our key technology focus of thin-film solutions to our customers needs. We finish the mission statement with: “get the right photons to the right place at the right time.”This statement leans heavily on Fermat’s principle, also known as the principle of least time. Fermat’s principle is a law in the field of optics that states that the path taken by a ray of light between two points is the path that can be traversed in the least time. This principle is used to explain the behavior of light as it travels through various media and is the basis for the laws of refraction and reflection, which are fundamental underpinnings for optical coatings. 

In the context of our mission statement, Fermat’s principle is our guiding North Star that encourages the pursuit of efficiency and effectiveness in achieving our goals and our customers’ goals. It suggests that the best way to achieve a particular objective is to choose the path that will allow us to get to the destination in the shortest amount of time, while also considering any potential obstacles or constraints that may arise. This principle can be applied to a variety of situations, across business, education, and personal development, to help guide decision-making and focus efforts in the most efficient and effective way possible.

So, this is where we ended up, the optics geeks we are: bringing together companies to build a platform focused on applying thin-film technologies to solve optical challenges efficiently and effectively for our customers in the least amount of time possible. Referencing science as part our company’s North Star is both fun and honest about who we are. Fermat’s principle is used to describe the goals and values of our Omega Optical Holdings organization that is focused on the control of light and optics, as well as used to describe the approach that our organization takes in solving problems and achieving our objectives.
