R&D and Engineering

High-performance optical solutions

R&D mission statement

Ophir’s R&D and Engineering department focuses on the design and development of high-precision optical components, lens assemblies, thin-film coatings, metrology, and advanced manufacturing techniques. The goal is to develop lens assemblies with very high optical & mechanical performance, while also aiming to achieve the highest manufacturing efficiencies. In close association with our customers, we strive to provide unique solutions, perfectly tailored to meet specific requirements.

The R&D Team

Our professional team of opto-mechanical and electro-optics engineers build the product prototypes required for extensive pre-production testing, to ensure the highest quality results. The team also develops customized calibration and testing processes, and provide engineering customer support to customers worldwide.

Our regorius pre-production tests include:

  • Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) on axis & off axis
  • Back Working Distance (BWD) & Back Focal Length (BFL)
  • Effective Focal Length (EFL)
  • Field of View (FOV)
  • Boresight & Line of Sight (LOS)
  • Environmental tests
  • Athermalization
  • Lens lifetime measurement
