Our building in Ontario, N.Y. was built expressly for our business. The building heating and ventilation systems were customized in order to insure a stable, low noise environment for high performance optical testing.

Assembly areas include multiple clean benches for final assembly, and custom assembly stations for element alignment. Test areas include 5 optical tables, most have custom interferometers with wavelengths that range from UV to mid-IR wavelengths.  Our lab space includes other facilities for MTF testing, focal length measurement, and other alignment tasks.
