Metrology / QS

  • Interferometry incl. radii measurement techniques
  • White light interferometry
  • High-precise, no-touch and touch measurement techniques for diameter, center thickness and roundness
  • 3D coordinate measuring techniques (tactile & optical)
  • Various microscopy technologies


  • Complete in-house production (preparation of raw material > coating/lacquering)
  • Flexible and controlled production technologies
  • High-precise lenses (λ/100 PV; λ/500 RMS), manufactured using deterministic processes
  • Lenses for various laser applications (special polishing techniques)
  • Lenses with highest demands with respect to surface defects and quality
  • Cost-efficient production even for small batch sizes

Formed lenses

We possess

  • Expertise in lens production and the ability to produce and test any desired external geometries up to a repeatability accuracy of 3 µm
  • Measurement techniques and equipment integrated into the process in order to create positional tolerances (e. g. optics to mechanics) of up to 3 µm of displacement and 10 sec of tilting

Cemented elements

  • Production of ambitious cemented lenses
  • Alignment under collimators, autocollimators or directly under the interferometer with simultaneous control of the wavefront transmitted
  • Option of free design, even when cemented and in terms of the optical functional surfaces
