Design of optical Elements and Systems

The design of optical systems from the first concept to the detailed design of an optical system is the core of our service. With technical competence in the development of optical systems for laser applications as well as imaging systems in the field of material inspection, we support you in the following topics:

  • Definition of requirements
  • Idea generation and concept development
  • Optical design and optimization
  • Modeling and simulation with Zemax OpticStudio
  • Analysis of imaging performance and system performance
  • Analysis and allocation of tolerances for optics and mechanics
  • Creation of production drawings according to ISO 10110 and parts lists
  • Documentation and design reports

The implementation is always individual and based on your needs. In general projects start with a concept development phase in which different approaches to solutions are presented and discussed, while the requirements are norrowed down at the same time.

In this phase, we advise you on the selection and suitability of concepts by comparing the properties to be expected, development costs, manufacturing costs, delivery times and tolerances.

A selected concept is then detailed and optimized with regard to optical performance and fulfillment of the requirements. Commercial calculation software (e.g. Zemax OpticStudio) is used, which can be expanded to include your own evaluations and analyzes, depending on the task.

The result of this development phase is a complete optical design that is checked for manufacturability and tolerances. In the case of more complex systems, an adjustment and test strategy is also developed. The end of the optical design is the preparation of the technical drawings for optical components and the overall system. This forms the basis for further integration or for the construction of mechanical housings.
