Introducing our products

Vortex Lenses / Spiral Phase Plates

A vortex lens, in literature also referred to as spiral phase plate, finds application in many cutting edge scientific and technological developments such as stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy, optical vortex chronographs, nano-lithography, ranging as well as optical trapping. In addition, vortex lenses play a considerable role in modern data transfer and data cryptography.

Phase Steps / Mode Converters

Phase plates with a linearly shaped phase steps are commonly used as mode convertres and allow to transform Hermite–Gaussian Modes from TEM00 to higher modes TEM01, TEM11 etc. Such transoframtions are applied for example in the field of optical cavities and resonators.
