Laser Optics

Laser optics encompasses the design, fabrication, and characterization of laser optical components and systems at a particular or broad scale of wavelengths of UV, Visible, and IR spectral regions that manipulate laser light to use in several industries. This includes the development of laser lenses, optical mirrors, prisms, optical windows, filters, DOEs, beam splitters, and other optical components.

Laser optics play a crucial role to focus, transmit, reflect, and altering/modify laser beams in achieving specific tasks. They are carefully designed and integrated to control the laser beam’s properties, enabling precise and efficient use of laser technology.

Laser optics are essential components that enable the manipulation, control, and utilization of laser light in various applications across different fields like laser cutting, laser welding, laser marking and engraving, laser material processing, laser medical treatment, laser scanning, fiber optics, laser spectroscopy, defense and security, and biomedical imaging.

Imaging Optics

Imaging optics is the use of light to create images. It is used in various applications, including microscopy, telescopes, cameras, medical imaging, and industrial inspection.

Infrared (IR) optics are used to collect, focus or collimate light in the near-infrared (NIR), short-wave infrared (SWIR), mid-wave infrared (MWIR) or long-wave infrared (LWIR) spectra. The wavelength of IR imaging optics is ranged between 700 – 16000nm and they are widely used in life-science, defense, machine vision, thermal imaging, and industrial applications. Wavelength Opto-Electronic design, develop, prototype, manufacture, and assemble IR systems with their in-house manufacturing unit using diamond turning with the laser-assisted tool, automated CNC polishing machines, coating, and customized metrology capabilities.

Optics for machine vision refers to the specialized optical components and systems used in machine vision applications. Machine vision involves the use of cameras, sensors, and image processing algorithms to automate visual inspection, quality control, and measurement tasks in industrial processes and various other applications. Machine vision optics play a crucial role in capturing and processing high-quality images for machine vision systems.
