The optical elements are directly formed on a wide variety of vitreous compositions to target transmission from visible to mid-IR spectral domain.
- 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.
This technology is the subject of a European patent application
This invention was the subject of a maturation by Aquitaine Science Transfert
