Microstructured Precision Optics

 

The best known microstructured optic is the Fresnel Lens.

This is a special optical lens. Compared to a standard lens, the surface of the fresnel lens is divided into a number of concentric grooves.

Using plastic microstructured optical components offers many advantages over conventional optical products:

  • significant reduction in weight, thickness and volume;
  • ease in manufacturing of extremely high-aperture (fast) elements and large-area optical components;
  • almost unlimited flexibility in optical design;
  • cost-effective custom finishing of parts to virtually any shape and dimension.
