"The cooperation and personal trust that arose over the years isn’t something one can replace easily. Also, Leica was one of the very few companies with the technical expertise required to take my results in optical nanoscopy basic research and transfer them to instruments that can be used by anyone."

From lenses and prisms to mirrors and filters, we can manufacture a wide variety of parts in quantities to match your needs. With our exacting specifications and minimal tolerances in our manufacturing process, you can rest assured that Leitz optical components will integrate seamlessly into complex subassemblies. Leitz optical products achieve:
For prisms, mirrors and other plane parts, the angles are accurate to 1 arcsec, for polarization filters, deflection distortion is reduced to less than 10 arcsec. Transmission and barrier effect of color filters are matched precisely to your requirements.
Leitz uses advanced high-vacuum coating systems for ion-assisted vapor deposition coating. A customized coating design is composed of anti-reflection, laser protection and mirror coatings from UV to
