Micro-optics – Driver for future applications
Micro-optics are increasingly used in everyday devices. Cameras, gesture sensing and 3D scanning are embedded in mobile devices.
Along with mobile applications, micro-optics are used in automotive and medical devices. Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) can save lives when reliable range detection can avoid collisions.
In the medical industry, endoscopic and ophthalmic systems rely on micro-optical elements.
Perfect gap control enabling high yield
Good gap control is a challenge when using additives. Additive thickness varies from device to device. Also, performance during the lifetime of a device can be compromised. Adhesives change over time due to environment and temperature, will make reliability a challenging issue.
Micro-optics manufactured with glass micro bonding do not have any additive materials. Gap control is assured, and device performance over time is quaranteed.
Reliability and eye safety
3D scanning and LIDAR often uses high power measurement lasers. Such lasers can cause eye safety issues and stray light from damaged optics can cause severe eye damage.
There are two common failure modes for optics. First, moisture getting inside the optics. And second, delamination of different optical layers.
Both issues can cause stray light.
Primoceler’s glass micro bonding ensures high reliability because it uses no additive materials, so harsh environment or temperature cycling will not damage the optics. Furthermore, bonding ensures high hermeticity, which keeps moisture out the device.
