Scott Jordan

Scott Jordan is Sr. Director of NanoAutomation Technologies for PI-USA and a PI Fellow. He has more than two decades' experience in technical and business development, including developing the original digital gradient search for photonic alignment automation. This was the first of his three generations of alignment technologies for photonic device manufacturing, culminating in the recent introduction of an inherently parallel digital approach to fast global optimization of multiple couplings for silicon photonics test and packaging. Trained as a physicist, Jordan also holds an MBA with a dual major in Finance and New Venture Management, with a professional emphasis in innovation management.

From The Show Floor – Part 4 of 4: Piezo Motor Stages In the final installment of our four-part video series with PI from Photonics West 2015, Scott Jordan introduced us his company’s latest line of Piezo motor stages. He also explained the difference between a Piezo nanopositioner and a Piezo motor positioner, and the impact this difference can have on travel ranges and package size.  Continue Reading...
From The Show Floor – Part 3 of 4: Actuators For Test And Assembly In part three of our four-part series with PI from Photonics West 2015, Scott Jordan showed us a new type of actuator for test and assembly process that call for very highly calibrated, careful, and very repeatable force increments.  Continue Reading...
From The Show Floor – Part 2 of 4: Air Bearing Stages Just last year, PI acquired Nelson Air Bearing Products in order to expand on their portofilio of precision motion technologies. In part two of a four part video series taken from Photonics West 2015, Scott Jordan spoke with us about these air bearing stage offerings and the extremely smooth and long travel motions they provide.  Continue Reading...
From The Show Floor – Part 1 of 4: The Century Of The Photon “It’s been said that the last century was the Century of the Electron, and the current century will be the Century of the Photon. At the intersection is where innovation is occurring right now.” – Scott Jordan, PI.  Continue Reading...
