Micro Lenses

Proven Technology From a Proven Partner

For more than 35 years, Precision Optics Corporation has been leading the optics industry in producing lenses as small as 0.37 mm for use in micro optical systems, including endoscope objectives with a field of view as large as 120° in water.

Our specially trained optical designers and technicians have developed and perfected new techniques for producing high-quality micro lenses. Products and systems requiring optical surfaces less than 2 mm in diameter often result in a trade-off, sacrificing quality, price, or supply. As a proven optics partner, Precision Optics produces lenses with diameters as small as 0.37 mm using our proprietary micro-precision™ technology. This advanced technology provides customers with products in sizes comparable to GRIN lenses, but with the breadth, capabilities, and quality of precision ground and polished lenses.

The Precision Optics Advantage

Ground & Polished

Lens Design for CMOS & Fiber Bundle

Diameters Down to 0.37 mm

Superior Image Resolution

Superior Design for Superior Imaging

Precision Optics designs, develops, and manufactures micro lenses and micro prisms to meet the rapidly increasing demands of precise visualization in minimally invasive medical procedures, such as spinal surgery, neurosurgery, thoracic surgery, cardiology, and pulmonology, as well as defense applications where high-quality micro lenses are necessary to mission success.

  • Scratch/dig: <10/5 (10/5 typical)
  • Flatness: λ/20
  • Parallelism: <5 arc sec (1 – 3 arc min typical)
  • Diameter: +/- 0.01 mm; 0.2 mm – 150 mm
  • Thickness: +/- 0.02 mm; as thin as 0.2 mm

We provide complete custom objectives for both coherent fiberscopes and CMOS sensors, including the smallest diameter endoscopes. Our team also welcomes the opportunity to solve your most complex and demanding lens design challenge. Send us your specifications to start collaborating.
