Photochemical Etching of Optical Encoders and Photonics

Optics and photonics parts are found in the application for medical sciences, security, aerospace, automotive, defense, manufacturing, industrial, information technology, lighting, and telecommunications. Fotofab chemically etches custom and standard thin metal parts and components for the photonics and optics industry.

Chemically Etched Components for Optics and Photonics

Photonics and optics cover the entire electromagnetic spectrum from high-energy gamma rays and X-rays, through the optical regime of ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light, to long-wavelength microwave and radio waves. Industry applications affect almost every face of modern life, from weather and climate monitoring to the fabrication of new automobiles, and from advanced agriculture to vision correction.

Some of the common components we etch for the photonics and optics industry include:

  • Optical encoders
  • Reflectors and light baffles
  • Light diffusion screens
  • Filters
  • Heat sinks
  • Equipment faceplates
  • Laser mounting components
  • Fiber optic guides
  • Optic-based sensors for prevention and detection
  • 5G wireless network components
  • Optical fiber components for communication networks
  • Consumer electronics components
