The Importance Of Choosing Lasers For Medical Use

To ensure reliability and safety, the developers of medical equipment that use laser technology know they need to be careful when they select the optical components. High power density and narrow wavelength range lasers bring with them problems that are not always found in other optical design. Choosing the correct materials, designing exact manufacturing specifications […]

How Lenses Are Designed

Lenses can be found in objects that range from microscopes, lasers and other pieces of medical equipment, in the automobile industry for sensors and in self-driving vehicles and for security equipment. What is optical design? The business of lens design and manufacture is based on specifications of a particular client or object into which the […]

Thin Lens Captures Colors

Researchers from the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have developed a flat, ultra thin lens that is made from light-concentrating silicon antennas and a glass substrate. This lens is capable of color correction at a high level in a single, miniaturized lens. Shining light through an “achromatic metasurface” means the lens will automatically […]

Choosing the correct lens manufacturer is crucial to your company receiving the lens necessary for the tasks it performs. Whether you’re in the medical, optical or any field in between that utilizes lenses, take your time to assure you’re getting the best manufacturer for your unique lens needs. When you’re in the market for a […]


What Is Polarization?

Optical applications, in many instances, require an understanding of the manipulation of polarization of light. In optical design, many times the focus is on intensity of light and wavelengths while at the same time ignoring polarization. This isn’t to say that polarization isn’t a crucial part of the process, but polarization in and of itself […]

Optical Design And Optical System Integration

The optic lens manufacturers from UKA Optics field the question several times, “What is optical design?” They also work with potential customers and explain how optical design connects with all other optics areas, optical engineering and optical systems. If you’re a “general reader” interested in general information about lenses and optics then this post is […]

The Art Of Creating Custom Lenses

The manufacture of lenses is a precise art and UKA Optics creates custom lenses that encompass all measurements and testing applications for many industries, medical, scientific, and military applications and more. As background to the exacting science of measurements you need to understand how an inch became an inch and why a pound is not […]

Band Pass Filter

What Is A Band Pass Filter?

Bottom line, a band pass filter is “an electronic circuit or device that allows signals to pass between two frequencies.” This device will be able to discriminate and separate signals of different frequencies other than those specified. Certain band pass filters will require an external source of power and it will also use other active […]
