High-resolution Imaging Systems

Our Expertise
  • High-contrast imaging as a prerequisite for accurate detail identification, signal acquisition and image processing
  • Finely tuned, integrated illumination for well-defined process or analytical results
  • Adaptive systems for a flexible use through rapid zoom or focus adjustments

Our Methods
  • Optical design based on refractive and diffractive simulation. Stochastic analysis to safeguard error budgets.
  • Fine-tuning of optical adjustment on special jigs with integrated wave front measuring and MTF.
  • Low-noise contrast values deploying beam paths that are virtually free from interfering ghosts or spurious reflections. Simulation and design of traps for diffused light. Use of highly absorbing surfaces.
  • Optimized for specific wavelengths. Achromatic corrections for broadband applications in VIS and NIR.
Typical Applications:
  • Machine vision (i.e. telecentric lens)
  • Medical and ophthalmological devices
  • Long-range optical instruments
  • Automated production systems with optical process control
