Freeform optics are complex shapes that do not have any rotational symmetry. Freeforms can expand the capabilities of optical systems since they do not have the limitations of rotationally symmetric optics such as spheres and aspheres. Freeform optics are becoming more prevalent in optical systems as advancements are made with optical manufacturing technology.
Vertex Optics employs all the latest optical fabrication solutions required to manufacture freeform optics cost-effectively. Utilizing CNC optical grinding and sub-aperture polishing machines with five-axis capability, Vertex Optics can produce virtually any freeform optical surface. Whether your project requires off-axis section, aerodynamic dome, conformal optic, or virtually any other surface defined as freeform, Vertex has the experience and technology to make your concept a reality.
