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 celebrates 10th anniversary

Founded in August 2009, we can look back on 10 years of exciting development in the field of optical waveguide technology.

From multimode to singlemode waveguides it was an instructive way. With what we have achieved, we can optimally support our customers for new, promising products in the field of telecom and sensor technology.

We would like to thank all our customers for the exciting projects that have enabled us to grow.

Happy Birthday vario-optics!

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.

Make a demonstration appointment to experience the benefits of this technology for your application!
