Optical Systems

Custom systems from the first feasibility study through to system integration.

Custom optical systems from optical design to system integration

asphericon designs, develops and manufactures complete assemblies and optical systems for your application. Our team supports you from the first feasibility study through prototype construction and precise system integration. Benefit from in-house manufactured high-precision mounts, assembly in ISO 5 and ISO 7 certified clean rooms as well as standardized testing and documentation processes.

In order to find the perfect solution for each application, asphericon offers a variety of options for customized optical systems engineering. The spectrum includes:

  • High-NA lenses,
  • High performance systems,
  • Laser beam systems,
  • Miniaturized solutions and
  • Durable optical systems.

According to your individual needs, all our products and services are combined to develop highly efficient system solutions for you. A reduction to the essentials with simultaneously optimized performance, e.g. for selected series systems, can also be implemented flexibly. Thanks to 100% digitalized manufacturing we can guarantee 100% traceability of all components and are also able to manufacture with flexibility and according to common DIN standards.

Whether diffraction-limited optical systems for life science/medical sector, objectives for laser material processing, perfectly imaging miniaturized freeform systems for industrial technology or system designs for safety applications - we design the best possible solutions for a wide range of applications together with you.

Reference project

The aspherization of Fizeau interferometry
Traditional Fizeau lenses are usually based on spherical optics, and their measuring range is limited by the diameter of the input beam. Additional adapters or beam expanders are required to enlarge the measuring range, and some diameters are too small to be measured. However, working on behalf of a leading manufacturer of measuring equipment, asphericon has now developed an aspherical Fizeau lens which can produce large diameters without any additional components.
