While Optotune's R&D team, which has grown to over 30 engineers, continues to innovate and further develop a variety of adaptive optical components, the use of focus tunable lenses in machine vision and microscopy has become one of the company's main applications.
Recent development improved the focus reproducibility by using temperature compensation schemes or even integrated optical feedback, so that customers can also control the lenses in an open loop environment. Furthermore, Optotune provides a driver for all lenses including open communication protocols to facilitate system integration.

Variable focal length lenses enable rapid focusing in image-processing applications where the working distance between the object and the camera system is frequently changing.
STEMMER IMAGING has signed an agreement with the Swiss company Optotune AG for the distribution of their range of polymer lenses.
