Optical components for nanotechnology
Knight Optical is an established supplier of precision optical components for the nanotechnology market such as optical fibre probes.
Nano-optics is a field of Optical Engineering which measures the optical properties of materials at nanometer scales. Nano-optics detects light coming from nanostructures with a very high spatial resolution.
Knight Optical supplies a variety of optical components for nanotechnology, specifically laser engraving and electron beam lithography (EBL). EBL is a process used in the production of printed circuit boards, a market which has grown significantly in the past five years.
Knight Optical provide custom zerodur mirrors for EBL, in diameters up to 250mm, and optical flats in a range of materials, including zerodur, BK7 or equivalent and quartz. In addition, we offer custom diffraction gratings for defining surface patterns.
