We Are Your Reliable Partner for High Quality Custom Optics.
As a specialist for highly precise crystal optics, Photon LaserOptik GmbH supports the utilization of new optical materials. Their handling is often demanding due to problematic mechanical properties. Additional challenges arise from unusual geometries and exteme tolerances in various applications. During many years, we have developed a number of sophisticated methods and tools for cutting and polishing such crystal materials, and to precisely monitor their state during the machining process. Based on this experience and equipment, we can deliver high quality work in areas where hardly any competitor could operate.
Examples for challening materials which we can well handle are calcium and magnesium fluoride (CaF2, MgF2) and tungstate laser crystals such as Yb:KGd(WO4)2. Where necessary, we can achieve extraordinary polishing qualities (very small microroughness), which can also lead to particularly high optical damage thresholds. Also, we can produce parts with complex geometries and stict tolerances concerning precise angles, flatness and parallelism.
We are also well equipped for producing silicon optics. For example, we are able to cut silicon wafers in all geometries with minimal material loss.
If you have a demanding task, we will be pleased to work out an individual offer according to your needs. We are happy to take challenges and can offer to produce small quantities as well as serial production of high quantities.
