Today’s market for optical components and systems calls for innovative products that are small, light, more powerful, faster and
cheaper to produce. Polymer micro-optics is ideally suited to meet these demands, especially where established polymer processing methods and technologies enable high quality, high volume production at low cost.
Some examples of polymer micro-optical products that Epigem has been involved in developing for companies include flexible displays, brightness enhancement films, optical retarders, laser image scanners, beam steering arrays, optical biosensors, miniaturised spectrometers, computer generated holograms and optical position sensors. Many other new applications are emerging all the time.
