FAQ

Q. How can we recover and use the lost polarization in our system?

A. This can be accomplished with our PG-PCS technology.

Q. Can you reduce the weight of my large optical elements?

A. You can do this by replacing standard optical elements with our GP-Lens & other IO thin films.

Q. Can you simplify my complicated lens system?

A. Yes. By using a combination of GP-Lenses and standard lenses, you can do optical correction, get rid of expensive optical materials and make the lens system shorter in length.

Q. Can you create a better waveplate that works over a very wide range or angles or wavelengths?

A. Yes. This can be elegantly solved with our MTR technology.

Q. Can you actually make an optical element that could act one way in one wavelength band, and act very differently at another wavelength band?

A. Yes. This is accomplished by our MTR technology.

Q. We need to precisely control the retardation with a specific profile. Can this be done?

A. Yes. Our MTR technology is well suited for this.

Q. Can you make a thin-film with a difficult phase profile without expensive and limited diamond turning fabrication?

A. Yes. This would be a custom GP Lens solution.

Q. Can you combine multiple lenses and optics in a single element?

A. Yes. This is accomplished through our GP Lens technology.

Q. Can you correct for optical aberrations in a set of lenses?

A. Yes. This would be a custom GP Lens and MTR solution.

 

Some Questions to Consider

These are typical questions we like to ask when engaging you as a customer to help best assess and understand your needs and challenges.

  1. What are the key issues with your current solution?
  2. Describe the major optical challenges you are facing. Is it low efficiency? Is there a unique polarization? a difficult phase profile to work with? or something else?
  3. Are there specific technology features (i.e., diffraction, polarization, retardation, wavefront, focus, opto-electronics, other) that you are interested in?
  4. What are the characteristics of the light source you need to work with (i.e., polarization, bandwidth, collimation, intensity, coherence)?
  5. What are the desired characteristics of the light at the output of the system?
  6. Are there any specific tests, experiments, or prototypes that would best validate a solution for your problem?
  7. What is the timeframe within which you need a demonstrated solution?
  8. Are there any unique or challenging form factor requirements? Thickness requirements? Large active area requirements?
