Optical Engineering Partnership

Save Time & Accelerate Your Optical Development

We stand beside you in complex optical developments, ready to assist with unplanned or unexpected project challenges. Our team integrates seamlessly with your product development processes, ensuring smooth transitions into and out of collaboration as required.

Optical engineering with CAD at Photonics Precision Engineering GmbH in Jena


We have accumulated years of experience and expertise to deliver optimal results in these areas:

Optical Design

Broad and in-depth experience in a wide variety of optical design tasks. Covering everything from high-end optical design and stray light analysis to design-to-cost and as-built performance optimization. Our system applications range from DUV (Semi) and broadband microscope imaging to high-power laser systems.

Optical Engineering & Metrology

We assist in selecting the most suitable off-the-shelf metrology and in customising it for your system. We develop new metrology approaches, build functional models, and create simple and effective tools.

Opto-mechanical Design

Leveraging years of experience across various fields, we develop mechanical design concepts that support the accuracy needs of optical designs while being cost-effective and easy to integrate.

Optical System Engineering

We translate your application requirements into optical system specifications. By combining aspects of optical and mechanical design with metrology, we set up the entire optical system to effectively and efficiently meet your application requirements.

Supply chain management

Utilising our extensive network in high- and medium-end optomechanical manufacturing, we develop the most cost-effective manufacturing strategies. We assist in the technical definition of parts, finding appropriate suppliers, and qualifying them. We deliver a ready-to-order supply chain.

Project Management

Offering guidance in both classical and agile project management, from conceptualization to prototype development.

Data Science

We derive actionable insights from intelligent, automated analysis of extensive optical measurement data.

Physical optics modelling

Beyond ray tracing, our expertise includes electric fields, real laser beam propagation, and computational lithography (RCWA, FDTD, FDFD).

Algorithm development

Custom software tools for simulation, analysis, and optimization, enhancing information yield, insight, and speed.
