We build microsphere enabled lenses

We are redefining the limits of light. We use spheres smaller than the width of a human hair to push the boundaries of scientific optics. Our microsphere lenses function like optical amplifiers, increasing the power of any light passes through them. We use them in objective lenses for microscopes, and in arrays for high-precision nano-patterning for advanced surface manufacturing.

What's a microsphere?

A microsphere is a microscopic bead of transparent
material that lets us do incredible things with light.

Very High Refractive Index

We use microspheres of various materials in our lenses. They each share the property of having very high refractive indexes, which allows them to manipulate light at the nano-scale.

250 - 1 Microns Diameter

Depending on the application we use spheres of varying sizes. However, they are generally between 15 - 250 microns in diameter.

Optical Amplifier

The unique optical properties of microspheres make them function like optical amplifiers. We can use them in an objective lens to increase the resolution of a microscope, or in an array to make nanoscale beam spots to generate functional surfaces.
