Innovative refractive microoptics

Additive manufacturing with highest precision enables the fabrication of cutting-edge refractive microoptical elements. Benefit from the design freedom and optical quality of Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography for your innovations: Almost any shape can be fabricated, from spherical, aspherical to freeform and hybrid designs.

Additive microfabrication of high-precision microoptics

Single microoptical elements, arrays with high fill factors up to 100% and almost arbitrary shapes such as spherical, aspherical and even freeform optics are directly printed in a rapid, tool-free and maskless process. With Nanoscribe systems you achieve smooth surfaces with excellent optical quality.

Nanoscribe offers Quantum X maskless lithography system for 2.5D refractive microoptics. This system fabricates nearly any imaginable design with excellent shape accuracy. Thanks to Nanoscribe’s Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography (2GL ®) technology, microoptics are printed in a single layer by modulating the laser power according to the lens contour. This approach reduces print times drastically. Larger lenses are achieved as well with multiple layers.
