Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have successfully 3D printed optical-quality glasses, on par with commercial glass products currently on the market. They have produced small test pieces from Lab-developed ink with properties “within range of commercial optical grade ...
Diffraction gratings are curious things. Score a series of equally spaced tiny lines in a surface, and it will cause reflected or transmitted light to bend and separate into its component wavelengths. This ability gives them all manner of important applications in the field of optics, but they're also fun to play with.
Those devices, however, tend to be built by hand with bulk optics. Efforts to integrate precision spectroscopy of atomic vapors onto smaller-footprint devices have generally taken one of two approaches: sending light through a small waveguide, and having the evanescent light near the waveguide interact ...
White Point Optics is a Finnish company that takes vintage Hasselblad optics and reengineers them to perform at their peak performance for filmmaking. The look of the vintage lenses gives the image a lot of character that compliments modern high detail images that come from digital cinema cameras.

“Due to the level of testing and detailed data increasingly required by OEM customers, it was necessary to look at ways to automate and improve assembly and testing procedures,” said Peter Chamberlain, production manager at Resolve Optics. “The new precision lens system centering station will enable ...
After having developed laser polishing, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, Germany, has now also developed an ablative process for the ultraprecise machining of optics.

The newly patented invention, a flat lens, uses fractal metamaterials to bend electromagnetic waves. This ?source patent?, the very first issued ...
Fiber optics, or optical fiber, refers to the medium and the technology associated with the transmission of information as light pulses along a glass or plastic strand or fiber. A fiber optic cable can contain a varying number of these glass fibers -- from a few up to a couple hundred. Surrounding the glass fiber core is another ...
An exciting new breakthrough in the field of 3D printed optics was recently achieved by a team of researchers based at California's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). Scientists and engineers that worked on the optics project developed a new 3D printing technique that made use of special ...
The government of the United Kingdom has confirmed that it will make £20 million (US$28.1 million) in “pioneer funding” available to support R&D on three to five “prototype quantum-enabled devices” that could find a place in future sensor technology, navigation systems and other areas. The £20 million ...
