In the broadest sense, “optics” pertains to the production, manipulation, transmission and detection of photons. Its significance as an enabling technology for a wide variety of applications cannot be understated. Optics is multidisciplinary, encompassing sub fields such as classical optics, free-space optics, guided optics, integrated optics, quantum optics, optoelectronics, electro-optics, optomechanics and others. Practitioners of the firm have prepared and filed many patent applications in the field of optics. A few representative patents are shown below.
This typically refers to the transmission of modulated visible or infrared beams through air or space from source to destination. Free-space optics is distinguished from guided optics, wherein waveguides are used as a transmission medium. Click on a link below to see our work in this area:
