The firm's expertise in optics have been applied in technologies as diverse as fiber optic telecommunications, solid-state lighting, digital photography, displays, and diagnostic medicine. Working in programs in aerospace, government research, and defense, the firm's customer successes have fueled the growth of Optimax which has become among America’s largest optics prototype manufacturer specializing in Asphere, Cylinder, Sphere, and Plano/Flat optics in sizes up to 400mm. All parts are manufactured to customer-supplied specifications and include final inspection data.
