Ever since RPC Photonics was founded back in 1989, it has been at the forefront of technological innovation and implementation. From the early days when RPC helped make diffractive optics a commercial reality to today when we are supplying large-volume micro-optical applications, we continue to push the limits of technology with a world-class product development team.
A main focus at RPC Photonics is the development and continuous improvement of mastering techniques to produce high-precision surface structures that enable efficient light management. We are now in the fifth generation of laserwriting mastering processes that produce a surface pattern in photoresist and can be later used for replication into a polymer, metal, or transfer into hard substrate.
In addition to the mastering we have developed a whole set of support processes from thick, uniform resist processing to deep reactive-ion etching that enables the creation of general surface patterns in a variety of substrates.
