May 2012
Optoelectronic components and assemblies supplier Pacer International of Newbury, UK, has signed an agreement to distribute Zurich-based Optotune Inc.’s adaptive polymer-based optics. Optotune’s components can significantly reduce the size and complexity of optical systems used in imaging, lighting and laser delivery applications, the Swiss company said. It has developed a range of fast, electrically or manually tunable optical devices with soft polymer-based materials to overcome the limits of hard glass and plastic components. The variable-focus lenses and laser speckle reducers are suitable for microscopy and ophthalmology, among other applications. Optotune’s Laser Speckle Reducer won a 2011 Prism Award for photonics innovation from Photonics Media and SPIE.

The branch of medicine involved in the study of the anatomy, functions, diseases and treatments of the eye.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
