Optical Surfaces Ltd, has been producing optical components and systems for more than 30 years and is now accepted as one of Europe's leading manufacturers of high-precision optics. Our list of products include:
The main workshops and test facilities are deep underground in a series of tunnels excavated in solid chalk where temperature remains constant and vibration is practically non-existent. With such stable conditions testing particularly with long path lengths become quantifiable and reliable.
Working with these natural advantages is a highly skilled team of craftsmen with a commitment to excellence in both product quality and customer service.
Interferometers routinely used include Zygo, Twyman Green, Scatterplate, Fizeau up to 600mm dia. Laser unequal path (LUPI) and point diffraction. They are able to test surface geometry, interfacing with our Wyko computer fringe analysis to confirm final wavefront.
Our production and test facilities are approved ISO 9002.

Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
