The flexibility of our technology processes make it possible for Jenoptik Microoptics to manufacture unique microoptics in a variety of materials. We can provide our customers with the right solution to match the high accuracy requirements of the UV region and the new developments of the IR region.
Jenoptik Microoptics also has the capability to make high performance gray scale injection molds for plastic microoptics.
The ultra-violet wavelength region is of increasing importance, as many optical applications require shorter wavelengths. This is the case of micro-lithography, where the need for shorter wavelengths is critical to achieve finer detail resolutions. In the medical field UV light is being used in laser radiation for non-invasive and eye surgery. We can provide our customers with the right microoptical solution to match the high accuracy requirements of this region.
The visible wavelength region of the electro-magnetic spectrum is a relatively narrow band defined by the sensitivity of the human eye. There are many instruments that we use in every day life that utilize visible light for reproduction of colors, finer resolution, and precise measurements. Cameras, printers, barcode scanners, microscopes, and telescopes are some of the systems using the visible spectrum.
There are many glass types, which can be used to manufacture visible optics. These glasses are defined according to their refractive index and dispersion. Our engineering team has a vast knowledge in selecting the appropriate material and coatings to modify the nature of light in a controlled manner by using a microoptical system.
The IR region is becoming more and more important for military, telecommunications and medical applications, where there is an increasing need for sharper resolutions, compact assemblies, high transmission, and a relatively low dispersion. We provide integrated solutions by using a variety of materials to reduce the size and weight of the optics and increase performance in this region.
