Holochip offers a variety of adaptive lenses to meet the demands of a wide range of applications. Adaptive lenses enable the development of compact optical systems by eliminating the need for mechanical translation in variable focal length systems. Further, variable focal length lenses accelerate optical system prototyping, providing developers with the ability to optimize layout without redesign.
The APL 1050 was the first product released by Holochip and is intended to replace many glass singlets in an optics lab. Focal length may be adjusted by manually rotating the lens bezel.
The APX 1007 is an electrically actuated lens equally suited to use in a lab environment or commercial products. The focal length may be altered very rapidly, up to 20kHz, by delivering a control signal of 0-5v to the system. This is the first adaptive lens capable of providing optical performance comparable to that of a glass singlet.
