|General Lens Design|
Lens design is one of the primary capacities of SPA. We have designed lenses for a wide array of applications that include head-mounted displays, spectrophotometers, zoom systems, projectors, scanning systems, and photolithography machines to name a few. SPA has designed systems that operate in infra-red, visible and UV ranges. We work to our clients' optical specifications, and we are equally aware of the mechanical, manufacturing and environmental requirements that may impact the direction a design may take. Likewise, we have excellent relationships with several optical fabrication companies, thin-film coaters, and other optical suppliers to insure a designed system is manufactured properly.
Lens design doesn't have to equate to high cost either. We have suggested many design forms that utilize off the shelf optics from high volume vendors. So if a solution to a particular optical problem is something that can be simply procured, SPA can help with those types of applications as well.
