Optimax Celebrates Anniversary

Photonics Spectra
Oct 2011
Optimax Systems Inc. is celebrating 20 years of innovative optics manufacturing by focusing on maintaining its corporate culture of continuous learning, the company has announced. This year, it doubled its capacity to provide production optics, including 2000 sq ft of space for two environmentally controlled rooms engineered to provide enhanced metrology capabilities. The company said it has created breakthroughs in computer-controlled machining and metrology of optical glass and hard ceramics, and aspheric and free-form optics.



GLOSSARY
metrology
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
optical glass
A glass that, during manufacture, is carefully controlled with respect to composition, melting, heat treatment, and other processing, to render its optical characteristics, such as its index of refraction, dispersion, transmittance, spectral transmittance, homogeneity, freedom from birefringence, permanence, etc., sufficient for its optical application.
