An expert approach for challenging markets

Our leading-edge glass optical fibers enable many applications where images or light must be moved over distances from millimeters to meters. In demanding situations like harsh electromagnetic fields, vacuums, high-pressure environments, confined spaces, or high temperatures, our light and image guides provide an ideal solution.

In semiconductor manufacturing, microlithography is used to transfer a circuit pattern from a photomask to a wafer. Lithography systems must position the wafer against the lens in a way that is fast, accurate, and repeatable. To measure the wafer and process field-by-field requires light guides with the highest precision.
