FreeForm Lenses

FreeForm Lens Technology enables optical solutions with higher resolution, wider fields of view, lower aberration and low light performance not possible with traditional optics, all in a smaller form factor

FreeForm Technology: How Does It Work?

  • Classical Optics require minimum distances between refractive lenses in order to bend light to a focal point

  • Classical Optics are rotationally symmetric and are constrained in manipulating focus fields

  • Increasing image sizes & resolutions using Classical Optics must have ever increasing telescopic lengths

  • FreeForm Optical refractive surfaces are defined by complex mathematical equations, allowing radical and unique light bending capability

  • Stacking Freeform surfaces in a series allows asymmetrical manipulation of focal fields, fields of view, and customizable focal lengths

  • Optical uses that require high resolution, wide field of view, low aberration, segmented field of view, low light performance and other optical parameters are achieved in superior fashion with FreeForm Optical Technology

  • FreeForm Optical lens assemblies are like Pringles chips stacked in a can

  • The result: a very thin lens assembly with superior light refracting capabilities

  • Best of all, FreeForm Optics are manufacturing equivalent to the installed base for Classical Optics
