FreeForm Technology

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


Free form surface is a surface that has no circular symmetry

exclusion is Z free form surface which is formed by drawing a complex curve through a series of points in the YZ plane and then sweeping this curve around the Z axis

lens with no axis of symmetry

Free form lenses have a complex asymmetrical surface, which can help to design smaller, lighter optical systems that let more light pass, have less distortion and fewer aberrations

Lens Production

Same Manufacturing Cost

  • Free-form Optics is made using the same equipment as Classical Optics

No additional equipment required

  • Manufacturing is equivalent to installed base – no new equipment
