Prime Optics is an optical design consultancy service offering research and development of optical systems for scientific, industrial and commercial applications. The services that are currently provided include:

  • system assessment
  • design & feasibility studies
  • final designs of optical systems
  • opto-mechanical design assistance
  • assistance with fabrication, system assembly, testing, troubleshooting and calibration

Basic research is fundamental to the development of fine optical systems. A rigorous and wide-ranging approach is used which is supported by extensive in-house literature and a diverse personal network both in Australia and overseas. Results of original research are occasionally published.

Prime Optics uses its own Optical Design software which is under constant refinement. There are none of the restrictions that sometimes limit proprietary products. Software is developed or adapted on-demand for unusual applications. Commercial Optical Design software is maintained as a back-up and to suit customer requirements.
