ROCHESTER, N.Y. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — ASE Optics, an optical engineering services firm that provides high tech companies with outsourced optical design expertise and short-run lens assemblies, is expanding their unique Discovery Service to reach companies worldwide. ASE’s Discovery Service includes 20 hours of focused optical engineering for a discounted cost of $1750.

Developed as an integrated tool to put “stuck” projects back on track fast, the service blends optics expertise, engineering skill and production savvy to:
* Rapidly determine feasibility, difficulty or cost for new designs.
* Better define a problem within a larger program context.
* Troubleshoot a practical solution for a tightly-defined problem.

“In the two years we’ve offered our Discovery Service in-house, it has paid off for our customers many times over,” says Chris Cotton, ASE President. “We’ve been able to break down barriers that can cause costly delays; streamline designs to eliminate steps and rework; and bring better products to market faster.”

Representative projects include:
* Analyze tolerance of an ultra-fast laser system.
* Investigate LED spot-light instrument homogenization techniques.
* Analyze opto-mechanical tolerance for a high-resolution fluorescence imaging lens.
* Analyze laser-based sheet illumination and imaging system for zero-gravity turbulence studies.
* Develop optical specs for a medical fluorescence imaging system.
* Develop low-stress assembly technique for a polarization imaging system.
* Design linear lenslet array for controlled image diffusion.
* Develop sampling techniques for scanning optical metrology systems.
* Develop procedures for a precision optical element alignment station.
* Design IR imaging lens.
* Investigate novel imaging lens systems for horizon imaging.
