Mirada was launched by industry veterans who have created a new approach to precision optics. The need for a new approach is driven by the emerging automotive LiDAR and industrial LiDAR markets. This approach enables low cost manufacturing of precision optical components, as well as a new method of enabling rotating optical systems survive the shock and vibration on the road.
A Scalable Approach to Optics
High performance polygon optics, and similar complex optical elements are often manufactured by single point diamond turning or diamond machining. This style of polishing can produce high quality products, but with incredibly high prices and low turnaround time. This process lacks scalability, unable to meet the cost and production demands of the growing markets that rely on quality lidar.
Mirada has revolutionized polygon optics manufacturing. We invert the process, and form optical surfaces with ultra high flatness and low roughness. These surfaces are then assembled and aligned in a novel, patent pending process to create complex, yet low cost polygon optics, in a method that scales to high volume at low costs.
