Bern Optics achromats and doublets in diameters down to 0.20 mm

Sub-millimeter achromatic lenses as small as 0.20 mm in diameter have been introduced, including achromatic doublets. These precision, micro-miniature optical components—some as small as a grain of salt—can be custom-engineered, ground, and polished to micron tolerances. They can be used in optical imaging applications such as endoscopes and other medical devices.

WESTFIELD, MA, USA, August 22, 2011 — Bern Optics, Inc. today announced the availability of submillimeter achromatic lenses as small as 0.20 mm diameters.  

The most common type of achromat is an achromatic doublet, a compound lens consisting of two elements cemented together.  These precision, micro-miniature optical components – some as small as a grain of salt – can be custom engineered, ground and polished to micron tolerances.  They are ideal for use in optical imaging applications such as endoscopes and other medical devices.

In addition to careful control of the grinding and polishing of these complex lenses, Bern Optics Inc.’s quality control regimen verifies the centration of each element before and after cementing.  They can be produced with or without specialized coatings to meet the specific requirements of the application.

Founded in 1989 by Bernd Gottschalk, Bern Optics, Inc. is fully integrated to convert raw glass into highly accurate, exotically coated optical components, from prototype to volume production.  As one of the premier independent manufacturers of precision optics, the company has consistently remained in the forefront of micro-miniature optics manufacture and fabrication.  For more information, contact Bern Optics at (413)568-6800, or
