Optical prisms from Bern Optics for medical devices and instrumentation
Sub-millimeter optical prisms are available with dimensions to 0.20 mm.
Sub-millimeter optical prisms are available with dimensions to 0.20 mm. They can be custom-engineered, ground, and polished in many configurations, including optical wedges of any angle, beamsplitter cubes, parallel plates, and custom configurations with combinations of plano, spherical, or cylindrical faces. They are used in laparoscopic and endoscopic medical devices and other instrumentation.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
BERN OPTICS ANNOUNCES SUBMILLIMETER OPTICAL PRISMS AS SMALL AS 0.2 MM FOR USE IN MEDICAL & ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTATION
WESTFIELD, MA, July 8, 2010 — Bern Optics, Inc. today announced the availability of submillimeter optical prisms with dimensions to 0.20 mm. These precision elements can be custom engineered, ground and polished in a variety of difficult configurations, including optical wedges of any given angle, beam splitter cubes, parallel plates and custom configurations with combinations of plano, spherical or cylindrical faces.
Created from optical and filter glasses with minimal edge chipping, these microscopic elements – some as small as a grain of salt – are used in laparoscopic and endoscopic medical devices, as well as in a variety of instrumentation requiring extremely precise optical components.
Bern Optics can also produce cemented, multi-element prisms with exceptionally accurate alignment and documentation. Custom designed reflective and anti-reflection coatings can be provided on all prisms.
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-optics manufacture and fabrication.
