The LINOS brand rises from our Qioptiq heritage and is well established as our premium off-the-shelf optical lens elements, optomechanical bench systems, magneto-/electro-optic modules, lens assemblies and sophisticated optomechanical sub-assemblies.

With a deep-rooted photonics foundation dating back to 1898, LINOS originated in 1996 as a result of the merger of Spindler & Hoyer, Steeg & Reuter Präzisionoptik, Franke Optik and Gsanger Optoelektronik.

Conceived, engineered and manufactured in Germany, LINOS Optical Products set the industry standard for precision performance in applications like machine vision, laser material processing, ophthalmic laser surgery, OLED flat panel inspection and a vast range of scientific research.
