Optical design

Optical design is the process of describing the refracting or reflecting elements in an optical system so that it meets a set of performance specifications.
Optical design

Typically, the performance specifications concern the imaging characteristics of the system, such as the resolution, magnification, numerical aperture, and field of view. Other requirements may include tolerances, size, weight, and cost. The result of an optical design project is typically a prescription or database that lists the materials and shapes of the optical elements required.

Technooptic provides design services for simple optical components or complex assemblies. We design and build special optical components, devices and systems for a wide variety of applications.
