From concept through prototypes to mass production – Axxicon is your partner for polymer precision optical components
LENSES – Spherical, aspheric or freeform optical mould inserts are produced with diamond cutting or hand polishing.
Roughness’ as low as 5nm Ra are achieved.
Freeform shapes are measurements using a Zeiss Prismo coordinate measuring machine with Holos software.
DIFFUSORS – Diffusers are used to generate a homogeneous illumination.
To scatter light uniformly over a surface, The surface is micro patterned with a dot or grating structure.
Axxicon produces moulds for light guides for the display industry.
OLED – Advanced light extraction structured substrates for OLED backlight & lighting.
The current market objective is to design a low cost textured substrate with integrated light extraction for OLEDs.
Axxicon designed and produced moulds for the low cost replication of two-sided micro structured OLED substrates.
DIFFRACTIVE OPTICAL STRUCTURES – A diffractive optical element (DOE) is an optical component with a micro- or nanostructured surface
which can modulate and transform light in a predetermined way.
Mould inserts are produced via a lithography – galvanic process. Structures are measured using an AFM.
Plano-Optics – Flat polished surfaces that reflect light.
Roughness’s as low a 2nm Ra with a flatness of 1λ . Various materials as hardened tool steel, glass and ceramics can be polished.
Plano optical mirrors are measured using a Interferometer.
Injection moulding – Injection compression moulding
processes are used to mould lenses and micro structured products to have a good replication,
low birefringence and low warpage.
