Peak Nano Optics Completes Series A Financing Totaling $5.8 Million

Peak Nano Optics completed its Series A round of financing with a total of $5.8 million in investments, allowing the company to begin scaling up manufacturing to meet demand in the sporting optics and military markets.

The most disruptive technology in optics in our lifetime.

Using engineered plastics instead of glass, a new generation of sporting optics will be lighter, clearer, and stronger. In the past decades, we’ve seen compact roof prisms replace the bulky porro prisms in our binoculars. Every year, our riflescopes have grown heavier, fatter, and more capable of placing bullets with precision at long distances. And...

Peak Nano, Polymer Plus Join to Introduce Cutting-Edge Optics Technology

Peak Nano, in a joint venture with PolymerPlus, has formed Peak Nano Optics to launch commercial applications utilizing its ground-breaking nano-layered lens technology in the military and commercial optics markets.

Artificial lens mimics human eye’s natural design

A structure built from thousands of polymer nanolayers produces a gradient of refractive responses within a single lens. A new design of artificial lens intended to demonstrate refractive properties similar to those inherently shown by many natural lenses been developed by a US team of researchers. Based around a technology called GRIN, or gradient refractive...

Human Eye Gives Researchers Visionary Design for New, More Natural Lens Technology

Drawing heavily upon nature for inspiration, a team of researchers has created a new artificial lens that is nearly identical to the natural lens of the human eye. This innovative lens, which is made up of thousands of nanoscale polymer layers, may one day provide a more natural performance in implantable lenses to replace damaged...

GRIN optical technology could mean better implantable lenses

Although many people may think that the lenses in our eyes are just like those found in cameras, there is in fact one key difference between the two – while man-made lenses have just a single index of refraction, meaning that they only bend light in one direction, our natural lenses refract light by varying...
