Diffractive Optical Elements

A diffractive optical element (DOE) is an optical member with a microstructural surface. When a DOE is placed in front of a light beam, the light beam is formed into a pattern. The diffraction made by a specific pattern of light depends on the structure of the component. These patterns can be easily adapted to meet the requirements of any individual applications. Our market’s applications of micro-optics are:

  • Machine Vision
  • Optical Sensors
  • Automation
  • Lighting
  • Surveillance and Detection
  • Metrology
  • 3D Measurements
  • Distance and Position Calculations
  • Temperature Measurements and Visual Inspection
  • Fiber Optics
