Complex monolithic optics

Agilent Technologies is developing complex monolithic optics (CMOs) for OEM customers. CMOs are stand-alone optical assemblies that are created from multiple discrete optics bonded together into single, pre-aligned optical structures.

CMOs address the needs of demanding interferometry applications where system stability and minimal downtime are critical. They streamline an optical system by reducing the individual part count and improving performance and reliability. The result is reduced overall cost of ownership, size and weight.
