We have 25 years experience producing lenses as small as 0.2mm. Our specially trained optics designers and technicians developed new processes and techniques for production of micro lenses. Products and systems requiring optical surfaces <2mm in diameter often result in a tradeoff involving quality, price, or supply. At Precision Optics we can produce lenses to sizes as small as 0.2mm in diameter by using our proprietary micro-precision technology with the quality of precision ground and polished lenses approaching the cost of gradient index (GRIN) lenses. New techniques in spinal surgery, neuro surgery, thoracic surgery, cardiac surgery/cardiology, pulmonology, and other specialties demand precise visualization in very small spaces. Precision Optics Corporation can design, develop, and manufacture micro lenses to meet the rapidly increasing demands of minimally invasive/micro surgery or any situation where high quality micro lenses are needed.
We provide complete objectives for both flexible and rigid endoscopes, including the smallest diameter endoscopes.
- Scratch/dig: <10/5 (10/5 typical)
- Flatness: λ/20;
- Parallelism: <5 arc sec (1 - 3 arc min typical)
- Diameter : +/- 0.01mm; 0.2 mm - 150 mm
- Thickness: +/- 0.02 mm; as thin as 0.2mm
