Development and Production of Micro Optical Parts

Micron level feature size - Sub Micron Tolerances - Mass Production

Micron level feature size and feature control is of particular concern when producing exceptional optical components. Our engineers have a wealth of experience in micro optical part fabrication. Photo-electroforming's ultra-fine processing technology exceeds the capability of chemical etching. This makes it the experts choice for parts such as encoders, optical slits, optical pin holes, apertures, patterned surfaces, lens arrays, parabolas, laser holograms and other micro parts. Applied electroforming is a unique combination of laboratory processes further refined and developed to a level in which industrial scale production is now possible.

Metalens - Metamaterials

Metamaterials are synthetic materials engineered to have a structure not found in nature, and designed typically to influence the behavior of light or sound waves.

Curved lenses are the limiting factor in the miniaturization of existing optical devices. Replacing a traditional lens with metalens unlocks the potential to reduce the size of optical devices by say 100x or more. 

Applications of metamaterials and metalens are diverse and include optical filters, medical devices, sensor detection and infrastructure monitoring, smart solar power management, crowd control, high-frequency communication and lenses for high-gain antennas, improving ultrasonic sensors, and many, many more.

Maiden Micro metamaterials key features:

  • Fully customizable per the application

  • Exceptionally crisp edge definition

  • Nanometer accuracy

  • Complex structures

  • Fine contour lines
