Introduction

 

OptiGrate's full range of products include transmitting (TBG), reflecting (RBG) and chirped (CBG) volume Bragg gratings. Our superior technologies were devised by the company’s founders, and licensed from the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, FL, the 2nd largest university in the U.S. We offer volume Bragg gratings (VBG’s) with the widest range of specifications in the world and can manufacture VBG’s with efficiencies greater than 99.9%. We also offer the narrowest linewidths, largest dimensions, lowest absorption and other record parameters.

 

OptiGrate’s vertical integration of VBG manufacturing and our superior ability to optimize photo-thermo-refractive (PTR) glass and VBG characteristics have allowed us to become a reliable supplier of diffractive optical components for a large number of government contractors and industrial manufacturers.

 

OptiGrate has received numerous awards and grants from government agencies such as NASA, the U.S. Air Force, MDA, the U.S. Navy, DARPA, and others to develop and manufacture cutting-edge technology products. Through the support given by these agencies, OptiGrate was able to successfully commercialize our products for civilian use.

 

Our new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, which opened in 2012, was designed specifically for VBG production and accommodates the increased demand for our products and allows for future expansion of the company. OptiGrate is now able to mass produce fine-tuned photo-thermo-refractive glasses and high-performance holographic volume Bragg gratings that can be customized to meet customer specific requirements. Our unique vertically integrated VBG production facility includes a photosensitive glass production area, a holographic area, and a laser development facility.
