INO offers a range of metrology and characterization services critical for quality control of optical components and systems. Our measurements guarantee that the optical components you order meet all your supplier or manufacturer specifications. When assembling optical systems, our measurements allow you to verify that system performance meets your client’s needs.

Our expertise: Characterization of optical components and systems

Our optical characterization service gives you access to various types of measurements: spectrometry, colorimetry, luminous intensity measurements, optical resolution (MTF), interferometry, wavefront measurements, precision measurements using a microscope, characterization of thin films and optical fibers, and more.

Our strength: An extensive array of equipment

In the course of INO development projects over the years, we have acquired cutting-edge equipment to accurately align and rigorously test the optical systems we develop for our clients. This equipment allows us to offer you a wide variety of optical measurement services under one roof.
