OPTICAL SYSTEMS DESIGN > OPTICAL DESIGN
Optical design for product development is our reason of being. We have extensive experience in physical optics, geometrical optics, photonics, physical optics, opto-mechanics and opto-electronics. We design complex optical systems and precision optics for different applications. Our work always starts with the concept: this is fundamental to achieving a functional optical system.
An ASE Optics Europe we use proven modelling, simulation and programming tools, such as Code V®, ZEMAX®,or Matlab® to establish an optical systems model,simulate the operation of the optical system. At ASE we go beyond the imaging chain, with capability to include illumination, LASER propagation, straylight, sensitivities at sensor, physical optics through to image processing. .
Through calculation, simulation and implementation of optimization algorithms, we mold the optical components to achieve the best optical function, taking into account environmental factors such as temperature, atmospheric pressure or immersion. . This involves varying optical surfaces, relative distances, materials, optical coatings, always with manufacturability in mind.
As part of our know-how, ASE can introduce freeform optics, aspherical surfaces (aspheres), cylindrical surfaces for anamorphic optics or diffractive optics when needed.
As part of our core of optical sytems design expertise, we provide a high-quality and accurate lens design to meet the performance requirements and constraints, including cost and fabrication limits.
All parameters are studied with the utmost accuracy and precision by our team of optical engineers, using ray tracing and other techniques to model how the lens affects light that passes through it. Some examples of our design expertise are:
Our designs are currently in use in national laboratories and widely used in medical devices, research instrumentation, scientific facilities, defense and aerospace systems, laser systems for metrology and inspection, bio-medical applications and industrial applications.
Our expertise and experience in optical design includes:
The entire development process will be covered, and you will get your final system assembled, integrated, tested and working.
