AMOS uses diamond turning to manufacture small optical pieces for infrared applications and also, with post-polishing, for visible or ultraviolet. The company produces concave and convex mirrors up to 500 mm diameter with extreme asphericities, also off-axis devices and freeform surfaces.
Recently AMOS turned a large Fresnel lens of over 2 m diameter, sector by sector. The company also produces echelle gratings up to 300 mm long with as many as up to 100 grooves per mm and a precise blaze angle.
