TP-1: Free-space photonic components and systems

Free-space micro-, mini- and macro-optics in reflective, refractive, diffractive or hybrid mode often make up the most vital part of applications such as numerous multimedia and smartphone devices, specialty camera and sensor systems, scanners and medical devices. Your application might just be one of these.

If free-space photonics are indeed quintessential in your devices, ACTPHAST 4.0’s Technology Platform 1 on free-space photonic components and systems could aid in your quest for innovation.

Technology Platform 1 encompasses a full food-chain from advanced modelling and design using state-of-the-art tools for thermal, mechanical and optical evaluation. We have extensive prototyping and pilot-line fabrication facilities including multi-axis single-point diamond tooling, laser processing, lithography for very deep 2D structures, several embossing and injection moulding equipment on a wide variety of materials from optical transparent polymers to high-purity infrared glass. Your free-space optical system can be packaged and subsequently go through state-of-the-art quality inspection to evaluate the performance specifications. We can check the reliability of your system in climatic chambers at different working conditions.
