Optical Systems & Microtechnologies

Together with you, we develop comprehensive optical systems and microtechnological components and assemblies for a wide range of applications in the medical sector and other high-tech industries.

We help you with the following core services

Optical systems

We develop physical and technical optical systems (coherent, low-coherent, incoherent), including the design, dimensioning, modelling, simulation and experimental trial of performance characteristics. We always attach great importance to adopting a holistic system approach that takes into consideration the mechanical design, analogue/digital electronics and software (control, signal processing) and efficiency, etc.

Measuring technology (UV-VIS-NIRS absorption spectroscopy, interferometry, fluorescence photometry, time-of-flight)

Imaging and non-imaging sensors

Material processing


Plastic Optics

Light Guides

Lighting Technology

Cost optimization of optical assemblies and systems

Image processing

For your devices and systems we develop customized algorithms for image processing. The algorithms are optimized for the embedded systems on your devices. We can support you with classical image processing as well as with neural networks, e.g. for:

Recognition and classification of objects

Object-Tracking (in 6 degrees of freedom)

Barcode Reading

2D and 3D metrology: Algorithms for stereo cameras and for 2D metrology


We develop microtechnical and MEMS components and assemblies from metal, glass, ceramics, semiconductors and plastics for a wide range of different applications in microfluidics, actuators, and sensors.

Our neutrality and our supplier network provide the perfect basis for the selection of technologies that meet the technical and economic needs of the product.

Design and laboratory infrastructure

We use modern design tools for modelling and simulating micro-mechanical, electronic, physical and optical systems.

Our high-quality laboratory infrastructure enables us to implement and comprehensively characterise and test the performance attributes of demonstrators, functional models and prototypes in experiments.
