Expertise at all production levels

At every production level we rely on cutting-edge technology and unique know-how that underlie our ability to get from the very first ideas to manufacturing.

  • Innovative ideas

    INNOVATIVE IDEAS

    Innovative ideas

    We use our interdisciplinary expertise in development and improvement of our solutions, taking into account their potential to succeed in the market. We thus manage to deliver not only any of standardly available solutions, but we can also quickly and flexibly come up with new and unique solutions that perfectly reflect your needs.

  • Master calculation and function simulation

    MASTER CALCULATION AND FUNCTION SIMULATION

    We prove and fine-tune optical effects of the nanostructure even before master production

    Thanks to our sophisticated computiational methods we have been developing over years, we manage to realistically simulate optical features of virtually modelled nanostructures. Thus we can develop the nanostructure to perfection without producing a single material piece.

  • Master production

    MASTER PRODUCTION

    The most complex combination of technologies worldwide allows us to realize any idea

    No matter how complex and sophisticated is the designed nanostructure. Thanks to absolutely unique combination of technologies we can produce top level masters with structures 50.000 times thinner than human hair.

  • Effective manufacturing

    EFECTIVE MANUFACTURING

    Profit from our patented manufacturing process

    We use roll-to-roll embossing, the production is very fast and less prone to errors. Our one-of-a-kind solution makes manufacturing simpler, more ecologic and effective.

All important technologies under one roof

We have technologies for recording of all kinds of micro- and nanostructures. Thanks to this we can produce top level masters with structures 10,000 times thinner than human hair.

Examples of main technologies we use

  • E-beam lithography with technology of multilayer writing
  • All available technologies of UV lithography
  • Unprecedented 3D nano-printing technology developed in our laboratories
  • Ion-etching technology

Nanoptiqs

Nanostructures redefine optics industry

Nanoptiqs uses a revolutionary approach to create thin and miniaturized printed optics with unique features unattainable by traditional (extruded or moulded) optics.

"Nanoptiqs provides perfectly homogeneous illumination of surfaces or objects, and offers unprecedented possibilities for shapes and light distribution." – Ryan Daly, Managing Director NANOPTIQS

Nanoptiqs brings revolution to luminaires design

Nanoptiqs replaces big reflectors and fat lenses while improving light management properties of luminaires.

Thin luminaires with precise light management

Nanoptiqs makes it possible to design smaller, slimmer, more elegant, energy efficient luminaires with precise light management.

Application

  • automotive industry
  • retail lighting
  • street lighting
  • galleries and showrooms
  • automotive sensors
  • industrial lighting

Unprecedented production capacity

Nanoptiqs means printed optics. This solution offers the possibility of a huge production capacity, which is up to 1000 times faster than the traditional method of injection moulding.
