Optical Systems

An optical system is the combination of an optical design with mechanical, electronical and software components.  
Lambda-X creates and design optical systems for multiple applications in multiple industrial environments. From optical principle to optical design. From Proof-Of-Concept (POC) to demonstrator and prototype. From proptotype to serial production through product industrialization.

Optical Systems

Turret

The TURRET is an automatically driven multiple objective inspection system. Equipped with up to 4 objectives it is used as an OEM inspection sub-system in metrology tools for the micro-electronics industry.

Key characteristics:

  • Plug & play OEM optical sub-system (optics, mechanics, electronics)
  • Multi-objective, camera and motor set-up for automatic objective positioning 
  • Designed for back-end inspection of Integrated Circuits  
  • 300 units manufactured since 2009

Specifications:

  • Up to 4 objectives in one turret
  • Image quality controlled by through-focus MTF (every objective)
  • Delivered with calibration certificate (centered position for each objective)
  • Dust free (clean room assembly)
     

Hype Camera

Based on a proprietary design, HYPE is a robust hyperspectral camera, insensitive to vibrations, suited for biological and chemical imaging. Connected to a microscope it extracts fluorescence or Raman information from images with adjustable spectral resolution.

Key characteristics: 

  • Common path interferometer architecture
  • High spectral resolution (VNIR or SWIR)
  • Hypercube acquisition
  • Flexible and robust
  • Suitable for 2D Raman spectroscopy

Specifications:

  • Spectral range: 400…1000nm (VNIR); 900…1700nm (SWIR) 
  • Spectral resolution: 20cm-1 or 
    • 0.32nm @400nm (VNIR)
    • 5.8nm @1700nm (SWIR)
  • Acquisition time: 112 sec (20cm-1); 11 sec (200cm-1)
  • Field-Of-View: adjustable by imaging lens
  • Excitation wavelength: selectable (any wavelength based on the application)
  • Promoting innovation at customers with innovative optical concepts
  • Supporting new product development with custom optical designs
  • Derisking customer by multi-stage project management
  • Getting a Proof-Of-Concept with breadboard experiments
  • POC validation by prototyping 
  • Industrialization and serial production supported by ISO 9001 and EN 9100 quality system
