Biomedical Optics Manufacturing
Frequently Asked Questions
Lens polishing is the process of smoothing and refining the surface of a lens to improve its optical performance. It is an important step in manufacturing high-quality optical instruments used in biomedical research and treatment.
Some common microfabrication tools used in biomedical optics include photolithography systems, laser micromachining tools, and electron beam lithography systems.
Polishing compounds are abrasive materials used to remove surface imperfections and refine the surface of optical components. They are an essential tool in the manufacturing of high-quality biomedical optics.
A non-mydriatic retinal camera can capture high-quality images of the retina without the need for dilation of the pupils, making it more comfortable for the patient.
Microfabrication techniques allow for the precise fabrication of microstructures such as microlenses, micromirrors, and microfluidic channels, which are essential components in many biomedical optical devices.
Controlled contouring is a process used to shape and contour optical surfaces with high precision. It is essential in the manufacturing of lenses, mirrors, and other optical components.
Opthalmic coaters are machines used to coat optical lenses with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. They are essential in the manufacturing of eyeglasses and other optical devices.
Some common polishing compounds include diamond paste, alumina powder, and cerium oxide. These compounds are used to achieve high-quality surface finishes on optical components.
