- About us
We are happy to support you in the design and implementation of optical systems not only for medical applications. We can build on a wealth of experience built up over decades. We see our unique selling point in the consideration of special requirements and boundary conditions resulting from medical applications. Increasingly, we are also involved in the design, simulation and implementation of microoptical components and systems. When setting up initial laboratory systems or functional models, we can also rely on our precision mechanical
workshop including CNC lathe and milling machine and 3D printer as well as infrastructure and know-how for the assembly of light guides. For the development and realisation of electro-optical components, such as laser diodes, LEDs, photodiodes, cameras including power electronics and digital or analogue control, we have a well-equipped and staffed electronics workshop.
Do not hesitate to contact us even for unusual questions.
The ILM has its own implementations of standard methods such as the FDTD (Finite Difference Time Domain) and the PSTD (Pseudo Spectral Time Domain) methods. In addition, extremely performant in-house developments have also been implemented.
A Maxwell solver based on the Born series enables an acceleration of the light propagation calculation of in principle arbitrary microstructures by several orders of magnitude compared to the FDTD method.
In addition, we have an innovative Monte Carlo solver for calculating the light propagation of scattering media with arbitrarily shaped three-dimensional surface topology and arbitrary internal structure.
A heat conduction solver enables efficient numerical calculation of heat conduction in complex geometries. Considered are sources of arbitrary geometry and scattering for heating by light sources.
When setting up the first laboratory systems or functional samples, we can also draw on our precision engineering workshop, including CNC lathe and milling machine and 3D printer, as well as on infrastructure and know-how for the assembly of optical fibers. For the development
and realization of electro-optical components, such as laser diodes, LEDs, photodiodes, cameras including power electronics and digital or analog control, we have a well-equipped and staffed electronics workshop.
