Precision Optics Corporation, Inc. (OTCQB: PEYE), a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced optical instruments, announces a strategic merger with Lighthouse Imaging LLC (“Lighthouse Imaging”). The merger combines two leaders in medical optics and digital imaging, helping customers leverage Precision Optics’ next-generation micro-optics capabilities with Lighthouse Imaging’s leading-edge optical imaging electronics and systems integration. Together, the two companies take precision optical imaging solutions from concept into commercialization at scale, helping product development teams partner with a single source for optical modules, endoscopic equipment, and complex illumination systems.
Unlike a conventional spherical lens, a "cylinder lens" has curvature along only one axis, as shown in the first figure. Cylinder lenses are useful in applications where light needs to be manipulated in only one direction. The example shown is a plano-convex positive lens, which brings parallel rays to a line focus.Read More >

The optical lens market is large and expects to see ongoing significant growth over the coming years, with a projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.87 worldwide by 2027. One of the key areas of market expansion is Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology. For many applications, LiDAR devices provide benefits compared to other sensing technologies, such as RF-based short to long range radar, ultrasonic sensors, and infrared sensors. The increasing availability of components designed for LiDAR technology is enabling broader capabilities and more competitive pricing, lending it to a variety of applications that require high performance in a compact package with high reliability and relatively low cost.
Ross Optical’s acquisition by Precision Optics Corporation adds new capabilities to our portfolio with micro-optics down to sub-millimeter sizes. Products and systems requiring optical surfaces less than 2 mm in diameter often result in a trade-off, sacrificing either quality, price, or supply.Read More >

Machine vision is a technology that enables automated devices to "see." Machine vision systems combine optics and mechanics to create tools that can adjust optics in real-time to perform inspections and aid robotic systems. In our increasingly automated world, machine vision has become an essential component in manufacturing, farming, robotics, and many other areas. Quality optical components are critical to the function of machine vision systems. Optical systems for machine vision may involve high quality fixed focal length lenses, telecentric, or adjustable lens systems (zoom or liquid lenses).Read More >
