The Image is critical to your product.

Extreme resolution surveillance lenses developed by Gemini Optics.

Your product and business have important requirements and a reliable optical vendor is needed. Gemini Optics designs and builds custom lenses to meet your exacting needs as a trusted partner. Because off-the-shelf lenses don’t provide you with the exact lens and quality standards for your best products, Gemini Optics has the engineering and production expertise to be your trusted partner.

Concept to hardware

Your product starts with a concept, a vision. Gemini Optics brings the expertise to develop that concept into optical requirements, through a detailed design phase, through the opto-mechanical engineering phase, and to physical prototypes and production lenses. We have a core expertise in optical engineering and metrology – critical skills to deliver your hardware. We manage the full development, including milestones and budget while maintaining creative flexibility to accommodate your R&D needs.

Precise assembly / Clean environment

Our assembly tools and platforms are matched to multiple optical alignment methods and tolerance compensation techniques. We maintain a broad array of inspection equipment to meet the tight tolerances. The lens assembly is performed with modular and dedicated fixturing and lens vacuum handling tools. For the tightest tolerances, we use laser alignment on an air bearing fixture.

We have vertical, laminar-flow class-100 clean areas for lens assembly to ensure pristine, optical surfaces in our lens assemblies.

Optical testing and metrology

We are committed to meeting and working to exceed our customers’ needs. To accomplish that, we maintain a high-level of optical metrology capability. This benefits our efforts of diagnostic engineering and troubleshooting. Further our metrology expertise supports our lens production and to provide a tight quality control. Our in-house equipment includes

• Zygo interferometer
• MTF measurement system (infinite and finite conjugates)
• Focal length and aberration assessment bench
• Phase interference contrast microscope
• Stereo-zoom inspection microscopes
• Integrating spheres
• Dedicated custom fixturing and interferometers
• Alignment lasers
