Optical design

Alter Technology (formerly Optocap), optical design capabilities are rooted within the laser and photonics industries.

Our capabilities range from the simple selection of a ball lens for coupling the output of an optical fibre into a photodiode, to providing a much wider module design service. This may include proof-of-concept design evaluation, opto-mechanical and thermal tolerancing leading to material selection, and the generation of mechanical piece part drawings through the use of Solidworks.

In addition, in collaboration with established optical component providers, we can asses the merits of stock verses custom optics for your design solutions.

Understanding the required environmental operating conditions, thermal, optical, mechanical and electrical requirements are the key to any successful package design activity.
