Equipped with advanced
design and simulation software, our experienced optical engineers create world
class imaging and illumination optical designs.
are skilled in projection lens and camera lens optical design. Using Zemax and other modeling and simulation
tools, the designers create optical designs that achieve high resolution and
are manufacture-able. Greenlight specializes
in effectively using spherical and aspheric lenses to reduce element count and
size, while meeting performance requirements.
Along with aspheres, Greenlight uses mirror lenses and freeform lenses to
achieve desired results across the UV, visible, and IR spectrum.
Examples of recent imaging
optical design projects includes: DSLR
OLED Viewfinder Optics, LCOS Digital Rifle Scope, Automotive HUD, Off-axis
miniature HMD projector with free form lenses, very wide angle camera lens,
super telephoto catadioptric camera lens, iris scan imaging lens, fingerprint
imaging lens, structured light endoscope projection lens, laser line projector,
bar code scanner camera lens, extreme short throw DLP 1080p projector, short
throw DLP pocket projector, robotic toy CMOS asphere camera lens, and numerous
low f/# lcos projection lenses.
advanced capability for illumination (non-imaging) optical design. Using TracePro software, as well as
proprietary freeform optics illumination software, the optical designers create
illumination optical designs that achieve the industry’s highest efficiency and
light distribution quality. By modeling
the system accurately as the light exits the LED chip, designs can be optimized
to achieve optimized real world performance.
While the majority of our projects involve LED illumination for lighting,
instrumentation, and displays, Greenlight is also skilled and experienced in
laser illumination optics.
Examples of recent
illumination optical design projects includes:
LED post top street lights, LED
cobra head style streetlights, fiber illumination light source, LED flashlight
optics, IR laser line generator module, numerous LED illumination modules for
LCOS projectors, UV illumination for DLP projector, LED lightguides, UV
detector instrument, LED illumination for robotic vision, LED marine/dock
light, aisle and high bay lighting, medical spotlight module, endoscope LED
illumination, high speed camera LED illumination, and LED Illumination for DLP
Often, Greenlight is
asked to create optical designs for integrated systems that combine
illumination and imaging optics working together as a system. With expertise in both areas, Greenlight’s
designers effectively model the entire system and achieve overall system level
performance. This integrated optical system design
capability is critical in projection, HUD, and near-to-eye displays, machine
vision systems, biometric systems, interactive and gesture recognition
displays, and a wide variety of instrumentation projects.
