Selene Development LLC is a dedicated team of technologists providing optical-based product solutions for a wide range of markets and technologies.


Russ Hudyma


Russ is a seasoned optics veteran with 34 years experience doing complex system modelling, optical design and analysis. He has synthesized complex optical systems for both imaging and illumination for a broad array of end markets including semiconductor lithography, wafer scale processing, flat-panel processing, aerospace, remote sensing, 2D/3D digital cinematography, and 2D/3D digital projection. He has performed complex systems-level modeling, error budgeting, and image simulation of partially coherent imaging systems. He developed algorithms based on the Singular Value Decomposition to align complex multi-element lens and mirror assemblies. On the business side, Russ has a proven track record of bringing products to market at scale and helping both start-ups and established companies maximize return on investment.


Ian Wallhead


Ian has over 35 years of experience in optical systems development. Starting is the defense industry in the 1980s in night vision imaging, Ian went on to make significant contributions in high power laser micromachining, EUV lithography and semiconductor inspection. More recently Ian is dedicating significant time to the development of autonomous vehicle camera systems (imaging and LIDAR), AR/VR and bio-medical imaging in particular low light fluorescent imaging. Ian is a world class expert in systems modeling and in particular the suppression of stray light.
