Optical Design for Manufacturing

Optical Design for Manufacturing Optical design for manufacturing involves optimizing your designs right from the blueprint stage. It takes into account not only the specific requirements for a design, as determined by the application, but also optimal manufacturing processes that will result in the highest quality optical component.  Design for manufacturing (DFM) results in streamlined, […]

Advancements in Reflective Microscope Objectives

Key Takeaways:  Reflective microscope objectives are revolutionary in optical design, addressing challenges such as chromatic aberration and enabling diffraction-limited performance across a wide wavelength range.  Their mirror-based construction reduces chromatic aberration and extends working distances, while maintaining stability and precision through uniform thermal coefficients. The two-mirror Schwarzschild objective exemplifies meticulous alignment for optimal performance. These […]

Design of an Off-Axis Parabolic Mirror

Design of an Off-Axis Parabola Mirror Off-axis parabolic mirrors, commonly referred to as OAP mirrors, are engineered to manipulate parallel light beams. Unlike standard flat mirrors, they leverage a parabolic section to achieve specific optical functions. Collimation: When a divergent light beam meets the OAP mirror parallel to its optical axis, the parabolic surface collimates […]
