– we create innovative optical tools
Optics, Measurement Technology, Image Processing
We combine capabilities in optical measurement technologies, design of complex lens and mirror systems, image processing, and hardware control.
That enables us to utilize the diverse application possibilities of light for new, innovative products we create for our partners.
Our unique microscope, especially developed for vacuum and process chambers, enables us to observe samples in a vacuum chamber in situ with a resolution of 1 μm.
The lens is attached to a standard viewport and does not protrude into the chamber. The object to be observed can have a distance of up to 100 mm from the viewport.
In the wavelength range between 200 nm – 2000 nm, the microscope allows a variety of imaging and spectroscopic applications.
We build monochromators that are tailor-made for your requirements. All functionalities can be motorized. At the output free beam or fiber coupling as well as variants with (spectral) power monitoring are possible.
For example, we have developed the “Hyperchromator” for the laser-pumped light source EQ-99X from ENERGETIQ. This is coupled directly without intermediate optics, thus avoiding loss of power. In the combination, this tunable light source achieves high brilliance and efficiency.
High-precision test charts produced with e-beam lithography.
- Test charts with 7.5 to 3300 line pairs per mm
- Siemen stars, segments with a minimum width of only 150 nm
- Pinholes from 0.18 μm to 4 μm diameter
- Checkerboard pattern with square fields, 50 × 50 μm² or 100 × 100 μm²
With our expertise in optical design, we find the right optical concept for your product. Even before the construction of a prototype, we can precisely forecast the performance by means of simulations.
A well-equipped optical laboratory allows us to quickly build and adjust prototypes and characterize their performance, using a variety of physical measurement methods. Dust-free production takes place in a flow box.
