GREIFENSEE, Switzerland, Aug. 12, 2011 — Available from IMT Mask und Teilungen AG are microstructures in sizes down to 0.150 µm in combination with optical coatings on glass and other substrates that are customized for OEM solutions such as reticles, lab-on-chip components, light valves, beamsplitters, microapertures, masks, encoder discs and scales, calibration plates, targets and mirrors. The microstructures and optical coatings are manufactured according to customer specifications in quantities from prototyping to large-scale manufacture of several hundred thousand per year. The products may incorporate gratings for waveguides (minimum grating period 300 nm), diffraction gratings, metallic and conductive microstructures (chrome, gold, aluminum), mirror layers, optical coatings such as antireflection types and waveguides, bevels, microchannels, through-holes and electrodes. Suitable for use in a wide range of applications in bioscience, screening, optical devices, biophotonics, detectors, medical technology, microfluidics, machine vision sensors and metrology, the products are available in dimensions from 0.8 mm in diameter to 24 × 32-in. plates.
