Many applications (e.g. optical metrology, sensor technique, automotive or lighting) require a defined scattering of light while maintaining the spectral characteristics is essential. Examples or typical applications are: -measurement and sensor technology -automotive -lighting » Please refer also to our brand temilux® for innovative lighting concepts. Diffusers are used as optical components for scattering of light. temicon offers both circular diffusers with customized diffusor angles as well as linear diffusers which scatter the light into one plane only. Moreover a substrate can be structured with different diffuser patterns in order to create locally different effects. In contrast to conventional diffusers the temicon structures allow superior transmission values of 90% and beyond. This technology provides completely new opportunities of light design.
