One-off Components

Alongside the manufacture of our standard optical components we also produce one-off, specialist components to our client’s specification. These include scintillation detectors to be used in security scanners and X-Ray monochromators for the use in medical technology, to name but a few.


Some of our crystals are used as scintillation detectors for ionising radiation, for instance, we offer detector arrays for scanners made of CsJ:Ti which are used in airport baggage control and other applications.

X-Ray monochromators

X-Ray monochromators are produced to your specification, frequently using Lithium fluoride but also many other crystal materials.

We can also provide cleaved crystals for epitaxy experiments.

Cleaved crystals for epitaxy experiments

 All cleavable materials produced in-house can be used for epitaxy experiments as atomically flat surfaces. The following materials are particularly suitable:
