Syntec Optics Receives Order to Develop Optical System for NextGen Low Light Digital Sensors

Posted  by GoPhotonics


Syntec Optics, a leading provider of mission-critical optics to scientific and technical instruments and aerospace and defense OEMs, announced that it secured an order from an industry-leading blue chip customer to develop optical system for state-of-the-art low light digital sensors. These lenses allow more light to reach the camera sensor, thus enabling better performance in low-light conditions. Such pioneering systems require high technical challenges to design and make.

Jim Olson, VP of Systems at Syntec Optics, said, “Preliminary results look very promising. Syntec’s unique architecture performs well and is being executed in a widely implemented arrangement."

High numerical apertures require complex lens designs with multiple lens elements to control optical performance and ensure high image quality. Such lens elements are precisely engineered and placed inside the barrel to allow large amounts of light to pass through for high optical performance in low-light conditions. In addition, material choices and manufacturing processes have to be very precise.
