Micro-optical innovation — maximum customization

The complete redesign of optical systems provides you with an optimized design with high optical performance, taking into account the application parameters (source properties, opto-mechanical properties, desired optical function and manufacturing limitations).

The use of micro-optical elements as free-space optics based on flat optics or as integrated flat optics, provides optimal conditions. In both cases, a high degree of customization is achieved with functional flexibility. ZEISS' micro-optical elements replace or supplement your existing optical elements. ZEISS ensures flexibility through individuality – for economical and process feasibility.

Diffractive and refractive optical elements

Components

The micro-optical elements from ZEISS enable maximum customization based on numerous key factors:

  • Flat geometry 
  • High efficiency 
  • High numerical aperture 
  • Low roughness 
  • High optical functionality 
  • Double-sided structuring of elements with large substrate thickness, also for achromatic applications

Single components

Micro-optical DOE generate arbitrary far-field intensity profiles with high homogeneity and efficiency. Micro-optical ROE enable the generation of arbitrary far-field distributions with maximum efficiency, large angular spectrum and high degree of homogeneity for monochromatic and polychromatic light based on continuous surface relief patterns without phase dislocations.

Technology combination

Hybrid optics

The possible implementation of optical multifunctions based on complex systems of multiple refractive and diffractive elements is groundbreaking. For example, focusing and beam-shaping effects generated by heavy and bulky modules can be achieved by small and lightweight systems.

Replication
One-to-one implementation

Replication

ZEISS offers mastering and replication of corresponding structures for the profitable production of numerous micro-optical elements. After a master has been produced, it is duplicated in the replication process, whereby a very precise structure transfer is possible. After the master and replica have stabilized, both are separated from each other.

Installation

Integration into your system

ZEISS offers application- and customer-specific standardized, individualized and complex mounts for integration into your respective system, such as those based on special materials or integrated water cooling. The corresponding requirement defines your application.
