What is an ImagineOptix Diffuser?

An ImagineOptix diffuser is an engineered diffuser that is designed to disperse the incoming light in a very controlled output profile.

How It Works

ImagineOptix diffusers use the diffractive properties of geometric phase lenses (GPLs) to create and engineered diffusion profile that is accomplished with randomly sized and placed micro-GPLs.

FAQs about Geometric Phase Lens

Q. What type of diffusion patterns can you implement?
A. Typically, the diffusion pattern is circular, but we can do rectangular and other arbitrary patterns.

Q. Do your diffusers require an airgap like other engineered diffusers?
A. No. Since our diffuser films are flat, they can be laminate to other films and between multiple elements/films.

Q. Can you maintain polarization when passing through your diffuser?
A. Yes. As long as the input polarization is not random it will remain polarized. Depending on the design, the polarization may be flipped.

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.

  • What are the key issues with your current solution?
  • 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?
  • Are there specific technology features (i.e., diffraction, polarization, retardation, wavefront, focus, opto-electronics, other) that you are interested in?
  • What are the characteristics of the light source you need to work with (i.e., polarization, bandwidth, collimation, intensity, coherence)?
  • What are the desired characteristics of the light at the output of the system?
  • Are there any specific tests, experiments, or prototypes that would best validate a solution for your problem?
  • What is the timeframe within which you need a demonstrated solution?
  • Are there any unique or challenging form factor requirements? Thickness requirements? Large active area requirements?
