With the instrument inventory and experts at our disposal, we can offer a range of specialized laboratory services to accommodate your specific needs or research and development projects in optics/photonics.

Prototyping

Lens prototyping

Lens prototyping

We prototype optical and optomechanical parts through 3D printing or machining. Among the parts we machine or print are plastic lenses. We can also create moulds for your lenses or specialized parts. Read More

Photometric Mesurements

Ray file

IES File / Angular intensity

We own a fully equipped photometry laboratory where we can characterize several types of light sources and the optical properties of materials (surfaces and volumes).  Read More

3D Digitization

3D Structured Light imaging

Result of 3D structured light imaging

We are experts in several digitization methods and can digitize your samples and prototypes according to your specifications. We own a 3D digitizer with encoded arm, a mechanical 3-dimensional measuring machine (CMM), a confocal microscope, an interferential microscope and a 3D structured light scanning digitization system. Read More

Fibre Optic Packaging

Fibre optic

Optical fiber

We have available a Vytran GPX-3400 processing platform. This versatile device works with optical fibres and can perform tasks such as splicing, tapering, coupling and dividing using optical fibres ranging from 125 μm to 3 mm. We can also precision manufacture several types of subsystems according to your specifications.

Bragg Grating Writing

Writing a Bragg Grating

Bragg grating writing

We own two Bragg grating writing stations, one for direct writing and another for interferential writing. We own a 266 nm laser we can use to write various Bragg gratings according to your specifications. We write uniform gratings, laser cavities, phase jumps, apodized gratings and variable pitch gratings. We can package sensors and resheath fibre with acrylate or polyimide. We can also produce more specific gratings using a second 193 nm laser.

Optical Thin Films

Optical Thin Films

Using our electron beam evaporator, the HHV Auto306, we apply thin films of material (metallic or dielectric) with a variety of properties (reflective, anti-reflective, conductive, etc.). We can apply thin films of various types of coatings, according to your specifications, on lenses or optical fibres to modify their properties.

Specialized Cameras

Laser CO2 Laser ablation seen at 125 000 images/second

We own a high-speed camera and a thermal camera that can be used to observe phenomena imperceptible to the human eye. Read More

Tests in Climate-Controlled Conditions

chambre-environics-test-climatique

Envirotronis climate chambers

We are equipped with two Envirotronics climate chambers fitted with an access port for carrying out analyses during measurements and controlling the devices during the cycles. The temperature and humidity cycles can be adjusted to created simulated climatic conditions for carrying out tests on devices and components. Both Envirotronics chambers are mainly used to perform functional tests based on preset standards to confirm that devices and components work properly in high-risk environments.

Training

Optech provides customized training in the field of optics. The subject matter, adjusted to your needs, may cover themes as varied as deciphering standards, mastering design and simulation tools, the principles of laser safety and characterization techniques. Read More
