The best optical content with the best quality
We will continue to move forward with a sincere spirit and passion so that we can contribute to people
all over the world with our one-of-a-kind optical solutions.
Cutting-edge optical technologies
for a better society
Our core technology is photonic crystal technology, in which micro-polarizer arrays with various axis directions are freely patterned and stacked on a single wafer using sputtering technology. This technology is used as a core component in optical communications (polarization multiplexing), semiconductors (inspection using DUV light), precision processing (beam shaping), and other cutting-edge equipment in various fields.
Today, through research and development of applied technologies such as special optics and computational algorithms, we have realized unique products such as our proprietary birefringence measurement system, polarization high-speed camera, ultra high-speed and high-sensitivity thermal imaging camera, and carbon dioxide imaging system, enabling us to visualize and measure phenomena that were previously difficult.
By thoroughly pursuing control technologies and usage methods for light, which has universal value as the world's smallest "ruler", we will contribute to the realization of a better optical information society and a safe and secure society.
We are aware of the problems and needs of our customers and propose cutting-edge optical technology solutions that can solve those problems and optimize operations.
With an integrated manufacturing system from optical design to production, and elements and cameras that cover a wide range of wavelengths from ultraviolet to infrared, we aim to create value and methods to solve problems that exceed customer expectations.
Manufacturing and production
MANUFACTURING / PRODUCTION
Using our unique optical technology, we consider with customers, and propose various solutions at production sites, from improving the performance of manufacturing and production equipment to nondestructive testing of manufactured products.
We contribute to quality improvement by using our unique optical technology to inspect and visualize defects that are difficult to inspect and visualize using conventional measurement methods, such as high precision of optical components and visualization of greenhouse gases.
We contribute to the advancement of research and development by visualizing the characteristics of newly developed products and unexplained phenomena through visualization and measurement technologies that make full use of optical technologies to elucidate new phenomena and analyze problems.
We provide optical elements, optical modules, inspection devices, custom development, and contract testing services using our unique optical technologies.
Please contact us if you need help in improving the accuracy and speed of optical measurements, or visualizing and quantifying unknown phenomena.
Photonic Crystal Polarizing Optical Components
Ultra-high integration polarizers and waveplates using photonic crystals.
They feature high resistance to ultraviolet and freedom in the integration pattern layout.
2D Birefringence Measurement System
PA/WPA series systems provide high-speed birefringence measurement of transparent materials, such as transparent parts for residual stress evaluation, or transparent films for the evaluation of phase uniformity.
In-line/off-line mapping-type birefringence measurement system
With KAMAKIRI, the entire film surface is inspected. Therefore, even if a sudden optical irregularity occurs, an alarm can be generated real-time, to prevent any defective area outflow.
High-speed infrared camera / Infrared Measurement Equipment
We propose an infrared R&D measurement system based on the world’s highest class high-speed and high-sensitivity infrared camera technology.
High-speed Polarization Camera
CRYSTA, the world’s fastest high-speed polarization camera, can visualize internal stress and orientation structure of transparent materials real-time. It is of great help in various R&D fields, such as biotechnology, defense or aerospace technology.
Those systems measures the thickness and refractive index of ultra-thin films. They realizes high-speed measurement for complete 2-D distribution featuring zooming to micro-scale areas. They are used mainly for semiconductor wafers and display panels evaluation.
Polarization Imaging Camera
PI/WPI cameras are capable to obtain polarization information real-time, as a normal image, and at high-resolution.They are used in many areas including recognition of dark objects using their polarization signature, real-time polarization monitoring of laser beams, etc.
The field of optical measurement is still in the process of growth, and there is a lack of sufficient know-how and information sharing.
We will provide useful information and exchange information with customers who have problems with optics.
