Inrad Optics Inc. has long been known as one of photonics industry’s seminal crystalline products companies. In operation since 1973, we initially built a reputation on our ability to grow and fabricate crystalline materials to exceptional quality levels. Today, we are a vertically-integrated photonics manufacturer offering:

    • Crystal-based optical components and devices     

    • Custom optical components from both glass and metal

    • Precision optical and opto-mechanical assemblies

Our components and value-added photonic devices are used in a wide variety of defense, aerospace, laser, medical, process control and metrology applications.
Powered by Materials Expertise

In addition to the knowledge developed over decades of growing and finishing nonlinear optical crystals, Inrad Optics has extensive experience with hard and soft, crystalline and amorphous, metallic and semiconducting, and notoriously challenging exotic materials. This experience allows us to optimize our processing techniques to get the best possible results from each substrate.
