Photonics industry supplies

The Qioptiq [LINOS Photonics] catalog includes more than 4,000 photonics products on over 800 pages – from A [achromats] to L [laser beam expanders] to Z [Z-axis stages].  These products fall into three natural categories:

  • superior quality optical components
  • high precision opto mechanics for optimal integration of optics
  • premium instruments - light-sources and measuring devices

Lenses, prisms, cylinders and other stock components

Qioptiq [LINOS Photonics] is a world leading German manufacturer of high quality optical components.  mounted Qioptiq lenses Founded in 1898 as Spindler & Hoyer, their lenses, mirrors & prisms are essential elements in laboratories, universities and industrial concerns in 5 continents. unmounted Qioptiq lensesThe Qioptiq components are frequently mounted in the Microbench  &  Nanobench systems - rigs for quick accurate systems and experimental setups, but are also supplied unmounted for use in OEM work.

The full range of systems and components are described in the free Qioptiq catalog.  For lens design purposes, many optical components can be called up in WinLens3D [either by entering the part code manually, or by drag and drop from database lists].  Thus modelling a system composed in part or total of LINOS standard items is very easy.  The lens catalog includes achromatic doublets, cylinders and singlets of many forms:

  • Plano-Convex Lenses
  • Symmetric-Convex Lenses
  • Best Form Lenses
  • Concave-Convex Lenses
  • Plano-Concave Lenses
  • Symmetric-Concave Lenses
  • Cylindrical Lenses
  • Aspheric Condenser Lenses
  • Gradient Index (GRIN) Lenses

Many Qioptiq prisms can now be modelled in WinLens3D - including wedges, 30 & 60deg dispersives, amicis, 90deg reflectives, porros, pentas, doves & bauernfiends.  The new prism database holds the relevant data - so again the prism can be included in your design just by referring to the part number.

Qioptiq is also a manufacturer of excellent Machine Vision lenses, and is renowned for rapid OEM design and production.
