LightMachinery is dedicated to producing the world's finest lasers, optical components and optical equipment like high-precision spectrometers. The experts at LightMachinery are veterans of the laser and optics world with many years of experience in the areas of optical design, high-power lasers, optical fabrication, laser systems, metrology, thin film coatings and custom machinery fabrication.
LightMachinery is extremely experienced with specifying, designing and manufacturing custom optics components, equipment and lasers. Custom etalons, VIPAs, beamsplitters, laser optics & lenses and Michelson interferometers are available as well as custom thin film coatings, uniform thickness thin wafers (Fused Silica, Pyrex, Silicon), windows or ultra-flat substrates.
Most of LightMachinery’s etalons, interferometers, custom optics and wafers are finished using the company’s patented, computer-controlled fluid jet polishing (FJP) technology. FJP sets a new standard for optical manufacturing, allowing the adjustment of the shape and flatness of optical components to within a few nanometers as well as the production of large and very thin components with less than 10 nm of thickness variation. VIPAs (Virtually Imaged Phase Array, a special type of Fabry-Perot etalon with three distinct coatings) manufactured with FJP are at the core of many of LightMachinery’s advanced spectrometer series.
LightMachinery has produced components and equipment for customers throughout the world involved in space science, telecommunications, semiconductor, high-power lasers, academic research, nondestructive testing, biophotonics, electronics, pharmaceutical manufacturing and materials processing.
