Pacer to Distribute Optotune’s Lenses, Speckle Reducers
NEWBURY, England, March 27, 2012 — Optoelectronic components and assemblies supplier Pacer International has signed an agreement to distribute Zurich-based Optotune Inc.’s adaptive polymer-based optics, it announced recently.
Optotune’s components can significantly reduce the size and complexity of optical systems used in imaging, lighting and laser delivery applications, the Swiss company says. 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 machine vision, lighting, microscopy, laser projection and processing, and ophthalmology applications. Optotune’s Laser Speckle Reducer won a 2011 Prism Award for photonics innovation.
