DESCRIPTION

The optical elements are directly formed on a wide variety of vitreous compositions to target transmission from visible to mid-IR spectral domain.

BENEFITS

  • Transmission window: visible or mid-IR (350 nm to 10 µm) depending on the glass composition
  • Large variety of structures (dots, squares, lines…) from 2 µm to 300 µm – on demand.

IP

This technology is the subject of a European patent application
