OptoWave 40

Optowave 40 intereferometer
  • Overview +

    Optowave 40 is a full-featured interferometer that can provide non-contact measurement of flat or spherical surfaces and transmitted wavefront of optical components and assemblies. The Optowave 40 is ideal for measuring a wide variety of optical components including but not limited to contact lenses, IntraOcular Lenses and Mold Inserts. Measurements can be made using simple basic visual fringe inspection, IntelliPhase™ static spatial carrier analysis, or phase-modulated interferogram analysis. Optowave 40 provides flexibility to handle today's applications at an unprecedented value.
