At Meta’s Reality Labs Research, our goal is to make world-class consumer virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. Come work alongside industry-leading scientists and engineers to create the technology that makes VR and AR pervasive and universal. Join the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world. As a Metrology Engineer in Optics & Display Research (O&DR) you will be responsible for developing and implementing precise, robust, high‐throughput, accurate metrology and test solutions for characterization, performance evaluations of materials, processes, and complex optical devices. You will be responsible for tool health, data quality, integrity of custom optical metrology systems and support design validation, and cycle time of learning for development and fabrication of advanced display optics. You will also have cross-functional duties with systems engineering, integration, design, and Opto-Mechanical teams for custom optical system tool development as well as facilitating the development of test plans for various leading-edge technology display products. You will join a highly cross-functional team tasked with design, development, prototyping and production of optical components to support AR optics productization. This role requires close collaboration with internal cross functional partners and external vendors to define and deliver complex solutions to support process development, quality control and to performance.


Master’s Degree or equivalent experience in Optical Sciences, Physics, Engineering or a related field.

6+ years experience in optical components performance metrology, testing, optical characterization, spectroscopy and evaluation in a lab or hygienic room environment.

Experience with optical metrology tools such as interferometry or image quality testing (wavefront sensing, MTF and spectroscopy).


Develop and enable metrology recipes, solutions and methods to collect a diverse range of optical parameters both for imaging and non-imaging systems (e.g. luminance, uniformity, color, MTF, stray light, haze, absorption).

Develop specification documents, engage with suppliers, identify custom instrumentation, fixtures, drive qualification, installation, enablement of new metrology solutions.

Quality documentation, own, manage custom optical metrology systems, with focus towards tool health, data quality and integrity.

Collaborate with the larger research team to develop, execute on test strategy, provide critical metrology data insights for optical design verification, validation and experimentation.

Identify equipment issues and cross-functional work with internal and external partners and vendors to assure optimal tool-fleet performance.

Manage external partnership with vendors and instrument manufacturers to define test plans from research, development to production.

Develop test plans based on component and level requirements to ensure process capability, product performance and instrument validations.

Drive method transfers to internal and external partners to support technology research, exploration and development.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

PhD degree or equivalent experience in Optical Sciences or Physics or related field and multiple years’ experience in applied research and/or product development of advanced optics or photonic systems.

Knowledge of a broad range of optics including imaging, illumination, radiometry and photometry, geometric optics, statistics, and polarization.

Strong hands-on experience, willing to work in labs, cleanrooms and in setting up high quality and reliable optical metrology and inspection systems.

Knowledge in Design, Assembly and Automation, testing and deployment of test and metrology tools.

Well versed on standard tools and methods for measurement system automation at lab level including LabView, Matlab and or Python.

Expertise in profilometry, interferometry, distortion measurements, MTF testing, spectrophotometry, wavefront sensing, laser-scanning.

Knowledge and experience with color science, colorimetry, and visual optics. Basic capabilities in optical design tools such as Zemax, FRED, or ASAP.
