DESCRIPTION

Our technology is an imprinting method allowing to structure, at multiple scales, the second order non linear (SONL) optical properties of amorphous materials.

The optical elements are formed directly on a wide variety of vitreous compositions and are capable of Second Harmonic Generation (SHG).

BENEFITS

  • Large variety of micrometric structures (dots, squares, lines…), on demand.
  • Long range χ(2) structuring (cm²).
  • Large variety of glasses.
