Alpine Research Optics

Our core strength is our ability to produce durable, long life, high damage threshold coatings on tight tolerance substrates, particularly in the UV. We support a wide variety of laser applications for leading edge equipment manufacturers in the semiconductor, medical, defense, industrial markets. We are also very proud to have many of the world renowned universities and national laboratories as permanent customers.

Our in-house capabilities have expanded from the UV to the NIR spectrum and fabrication of spherical and flat items with complex shapes. Our employees work tenaciously to offer reliable precision optics engineering and remarkably consistent on-time deliveries.


Precision Optical Products Manufacturer

We use the highest quality materials and advanced optical engineering techniques to create custom and laser optic solutions. From fabrication to polishing, our precision optics manufacturing company readily produces custom precision optics, either off-the-shelf, engineered to your needs, or modified stock research products. We have over 30 years of experience manufacturing optics and supplying them across industries. An alpine research optical company is one of the best precision optical manufacturing companies in United States. Our facility offers many optic products such as co2 lenses, windows, optical components, optical filters, prisms and more. Check out our selection below.

Optical Mirrors

Laser Mirrors

Laser mirror manufacturers design to reflect light, including beam steering, interferometry, imaging, or illumination.


laser line beam splitter

Optical beamsplitters are used to split input light into two separate parts. Polarizing beam splitter cube or plate is common in illumination systems.

Polarization Optics

Optical Polarizer

Polarization is used in imaging to reduce glare or hot spots, enhance contrast, or to perform stress evaluations.

Anti Reflective Optics

Anti Reflective

An anti-reflection (AR) coating is applied to the surface of lenses and other optical elements to reduce reflection.

Optical Windows

Optical Windows

Flat, plane-parallel plates that are often used as protective barriers for electronic sensors or detectors from outside environments.

Optical Filters

Optical Filters

These are used to selectively transmit or reject a wavelength or range of wavelengths. Filters are used in spectroscopy, clinical chemistry, machine vision inspection, and more.

Optical Lenses

Optical Lens

Optical lenses are components designed to focus or diverge light. They may consist of a single or multiple elements. Optical lens are used from medical to laser processing industries.

Ultrafast Optics


Lasers use these design research optics and laser technology with short pulse durations on the order of picoseconds, femtoseconds, or attoseconds.
