Vadient Optics’ VIRGO line of technology
for rapid prototyping of new lens designs
Optical systems impact almost every part of our daily lives. They are used in:
- Ophthalmetry for eyeglasses, contact lenses, corneal implants, etc.
- Medical imaging for endoscopes, arthroscopes, etc.)
- Cell phone cameras
- LED displays
- Mlitary imaging
These products are almost always limited by the cost of optics Similarly, for optical assemblies for endoscopes, cell phone cameras, etc., in which size, weight, or cost constraints exist, optical performance is necessarily poor.
The Vadient team has fabricated prototype VIRGO nanocomposite optical inks and has demonstrated the capabilities of the 3D gradient refractive index (GRIN) printing technology to form nanocomposite optical films.
