Omega Optical has been bringing you the light you need since 1969.

Omega specializes in thin-film interference filters in the 190 nm - 20 µm wavelength range.  The layers are vacuum-deposited using a number of methods including physical vapor deposition, e-beam ion-assist and plasma assisted reactive magnetron sputtering.  As a vertically-integrated company, we can customize the size and shape of our products to fit your needs.  Our customers vary from individual researchers to large OEM manufacturers in the US, Europe and Asia.  Strong engineering support, large component inventory and US-based manufacturing combine to enable one-stop shopping from concept to prototype to production.

After nearly 50 years in the business, we have seen most optical filter applications.  Our markets include defense, biomedical fluorescence, chemical sensing, machine vision, point-of-care diagnostics, unmanned vehicles, drones, astronomy and optical communications.  A customer-driven business, we are always eager to explore new products and partnerships.

We have an active R&D department working on new products for customers and improvements for Omega.  Recent products from R&D include transparent-conductive oxides for use as heat mirrors, static dissipation or heated windows to reduce condensation, and coated fiber tips for use in optical instrumentation.  New tests include Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensing for transmitted and reflected wavefronts and the evaluation of new materials and techniques to extend Omega’s wavelength range farther into the IR and UV regions of the spectrum.  R&D has also developed a fiber-based multi-spectral detection system that has been applied to flow cytometry and microscopy applications.

Omega’s newest offering is a customer-specified linear-variable filters of hard-oxide materials.  These can be used as inexpensive spectrometers or order-sorting filters in front of detector arrays.  Our method enables spectral slopes of up to 20 nm per mm of travel across the part.
