The Leading Supplier of Electro-Optical Circuit Boards

vario-optics enables the miniaturization of photonic systems by embedding planar optical waveguides into PCB's (electro-optical circuit boards).

With this highly disruptive solution we provide to our customers the possibility to ensure their market leadership.

Our technology enables very competitive products in terms of pricing, performance and miniaturization.


vario-optics provides innovative embedded micro optic technology based on planar waveguides integrated on several substrates, eg. glass or PCB’s.


Applications & Markets

vario-optics technology is used in several markets, like data communications, sensor technology, medical and others.


vario-optics supports you with engineering services, like optical design, optical simulations and development of new, customer specific production processes.



vario-optics is proud to be a project partner of the PASSEPARTOUT project where our waveguide technology is used to build a miniaturized on-chip interferometer for pollution monitoring.

EOCBDo you need light in your optical sensor at very specific locations? You do not know how to bring light from point A to point B and back? And that in a space-saving and highly integrated way and with as little effort as possible?

Now you can guide your light as easily as electrical conductors with waveguide technology from vario-optics!

Whether you need individual light guides or complex routing, combine optics, light guidance and electronics in a single part. Add additional optical elements such as splitters, combiners, tapers, planar lenses or other structures based on the same technology without additional assembly work and costs. Forget tedious fiber laying and assembly.

Light guiding has never been so easy. Discover the new possibilities of waveguide technology from vario-optics for your optical sensor projects!

Presentation from Felix Betschon about EOCB technology, held at PIC International Online Summit, 19.05.2020


vario-optics announces the completion of a miniaturized Mach-Zehnder-interferometer demonstrator to show the capabilities of advanced integrated singlemode waveguide technology.

This demonstrator has a measuring range of 250 micrometers with a resolution in the single digit nanometer range.
