Optical Design and Analysis

are core competencies of optX imaging systems. optX engineers have a wealth of experience in designing innovative optical systems for all wavelengths, with a particular specialty in designing multi-spectral optical systems. A key part of the development process is the ability to analyze every aspect of the design to ensure that the system will perform as required. optX utilizes both Code V and Zemax software for sequential and non-sequential design and analysis. optX will then take the design through prototyping to ensure that the final product meets the customer needs. Our capabilities include:

Optical design of:

  • UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR spectral bands

  • Reflective, refractive, and catadioptric multi-spectral optics

  • Ultra-compact, lightweight optical systems

  • On-axis and off-axis reflective¬†optics

  • Wide and narrow field of view optics

  • Fast f/number optics

  • Discreet and continuous zoom optics

Optical analysis of:

  • Geometric and diffraction analysis

  • Tolerances

  • Stray light

  • Temporal effects and implementation

Optical prototyping

  • Build and deliver prototypes to customer

  • Provide technical support for prototyping by customer

  • Test and verify prototype performance
