ZYGO's experience and history of innovation makes it one the most respected optical fabrication companies in the world. From developing the industry's first precision asphere grinder for production, to becoming the world's sole volume supplier of laser fusion amplifier slabs, ZYGO embodies a culture of industry-changing innovation in optical fabrication.

ZYGO's Optics business segment has the breadth of expertise to join high precision optical design with high quality volume manufacture. Four separate facilities in Arizona, California, and Connecticut work together with one mission - bringing high precision, quality, and volume production together.

While ZYGO's rich history and extensive optical fabrication experience extends to a wide range of optical components, our speciality is fabricating flat optics and spherical optics in the 8 mm to 1 meter class. What makes ZYGO unique is an ability to produce high-quality components in volume, which stems from optical fabrication equipment that has been developed in-house. ZYGO has very highly-integrated optical fabrication machines and processes that utilize a variety of proprietary metrology techniques. The amount of feedback and control allows ZYGO's facilities to do things that no others in the world can do in production.

ZYGO's capabilities also include polishing sapphire for use in semiconductor lithography machines, thin-film coating of large optics, and reducing the weight (light-weighting) of heavy optical components for aerospace and defense applications. Other specialities include thin-film coatings on optics ranging from 1-600 mm and wavelengths from 200-2000 nm, and CNC glass machining capabilities to reduce the weight of large and heavy optics.

From concept, to prototype and to volume production, ZYGO will work with you to optimize your design for performance, cost, and delivery.
