The optics department of TNO provides world class technical solutions for customer needs in the field of high performance compact optical systems in demanding environments.

The manufacturing of special optical components and instruments is our primary task. Within this field we focus on the production of aspheres and free form optics with a high accuracy and low roughness. In addition Optics Manufacturing also provides advice on the manufacturability and costs of your products, and conducts production process research.

Our services can be divided in metal and glass manufacturing, coatings and metrology. Using these different expertises and TNO’s state-of-the-art machinery, TNO’s advice and products are commonly applied in space instruments, astronomy, scientific research, nano-photonics, semiconductor industry and high-tech industries. We are always looking for new challenges in which functionality and costs are key. We feel comfortable pushing the limits in optics manufacturing.
