QED Technologies International Inc. of Rochester, N.Y., has opened a renovated manufacturing facility for its new division, QED Optics. The plant is equipped with magnetorheological finishing (MRF), polishing and subaperture stitching interferometry (SSI) metrology systems and with a metrology tower for measuring large-aperture optics. QED Optics specializes in polishing and metrology of flats, spheres, on- and off-axis aspheres, free-form optics and cylinders and can work with optical components ranging from ~1 mm to 1 m in diameter. It employs proprietary MRF and SSI technologies and will help customers manage the full optics fabrication process.
