Optical high-tech components
Innovative production processes to suit your project
Devices are getting smaller and more powerful, and their functions more complex. ZEISS manufactures the appropriate high-tech optical components for this. Whether high-performance spheres, aspheres, freeform optics or special components – we continue to develop in every discipline and outperform our competitors with the renowned ZEISS quality. Do you need individual optical coatings for your project? We are also here for this and support you with our specific coating development.
Better performance through high-end technologies
Our expertise in optics for you at a glance
Our specialty are components with excellent optical functions – from the smallest radius to the largest possible aperture angle. Production is carried out entirely within the ZEISS production network.
Individual and versatile optical components
At ZEISS, we realize precise freeform surfaces for you according to customer requirements, whether a prototype or series production. All processes are modularly adapted to the individual product.
Flat optical components with highest transmission
We rely on a broad range of materials to manufacture components with multiple optical functions. We jointly select the optimal coating from existing coating systems and even customize the cement.
Lightweight and highly accurate aspherical mirrors
With our specialized manufacturing processes, we also produce sophisticated large optics and special parts according to customer requirements – for example, for use in space. Here, too, we offer all services from a single source – from material procurement to transport.
High-end filters and effective anti-reflection coatings
By manufacturing filters or applying optical coatings, we improve the optical properties of many surfaces – for high transmission and great performance right to the edge.
Optimization of optical systems
Micro-optical elements can improve the performance of existing classical optical systems and add new functionalities. ZEISS functionalizes transparent surfaces using different refractive and diffractive optical elements and their combinations for application areas from EUV to IR.
