Tiny Camera Takes a Wide View
A new imager achieves the optical performance of a traditional wide-angle or fish-eye lens — and in high resolution — but in a device less than one-tenth the volume. Such a system could enable high-resolution imaging in unmanned aerial microvehicles, or smartphone photos more comparable to those from a full-size single-lens reflex (SLR) camera.

Cost effectively achieving exceptional transmitted wavefront and parallelism on flat optics
Because it can process multiple parts simultaneously, the double-side process is the most cost-effective way to achieve flat, parallel parts that require exceptional transmitted wavefront and very low wedge (<1 arc s). The process is ideal for OEMs, coating companies, instrument manufacturers and wafer-based processing labs to create optics in sizes to 740 mm in diameter and 0.150 mm thickness, in quantities to over 10,000 pieces per month.
