Aspheric optics are used throughout sophisticated optical systems today. Our customers use aspheres in beam expanders, collimators, airborne imaging systems, telescopes, and as focusing elements for high-energy lasers. Aspheric systems offer the advantages of compact geometry, simplification in optical design over spherical optics, and enhanced performance. AOS manufactures parabolas, hyperboloids, ellipsoids, cylinders, toroids, and higher order aspheric freeforms.

Send us your drawings or specifications and we’ll begin preparing a quote for you.
The table below lists the information we’ll need to fully specify your asphere (No worries if you’re not sure about the specs. We can work it out with you).
|Size of the incident or reflected beam: this tells us how to set the dimensions of the asphere|
|Off-Axis Angle or Off Axis Distance|
|Quality needed (reflected wavefront error & cosmetic quality)|
