Schäfter+Kirchhoff was first established about 50 years ago as an optical engineering office specializing in the optical design of high-quality projection and telescope optics. With the establishment of production and development capabilities, the company has built up an enviable reputation in the application of laser metrology and opto-electronic sensor systems for scientific research and industrial measurement.
Currently, Schäfter+Kirchhoff has three major product development lines, involving line scan camera systems, laser line generators and fiber optic components. These complementary areas of expertise allow us to offer a specialist and custom-made development service, according to your needs.
The Filmetrics F20 benchtop film thickness measurement tool is a general purpose instrument for measuring thickness and refractive index.
This product profile outlines Radiant’s Near-Eye Display Test Solution with Electronic Focus and how XRE lenses are used.

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.
R. Bruce Weisman
AZoOptics interviews R. Bruce Weisman from Rice University in Texas, US, who has discovered fluorescence from silicon nanoparticles in cement and how it can be used to reveal early signs of damage in concrete structures.
