Axometrics is the industry leader in full Mueller matrix polarization testing. Our core measurement technologies measure all possible polarization properties (the full Mueller matrix) of a sample, and key polarization parameters (polarizer properties, retarder properties, depolarization properties) are reported to the operator.
The AxoScan system measures polarization properties in a single point of the sample in only 30 ms! AxoScan is the industry standard for excellence in LCD film and panel testing, and finds many other applications in testing optical components, biological samples.
The AxoStep is the industry’s first Mueller Matrix imaging microscope. The system creates a full 2D map of all possible polarization properties in areas ranging from 9 mm x 7 mm down to 40 µm x 30 µm.
Axometrics offers a range of light sources for our measurement systems, including tunable visible sources (400 nm to 800 nm), ultra-stable single-wavelength LED sources, and lasers. Axometrics will help you select the right source for your application.
A wide range of fixtures are available for both the AxoScan and the AxoStep. Fixtures for mounting to an optics table, reflection testing, automated XY mapping, and automated tilt and rotation. Fixture range from bench-top systems for microscopic measurements of cell phone camera lenses, to large industrial machines with robot loading of three meter long (Gen 10) LCD motherglass.

More than a quarter-century ago, Tom Baur, researcher for the National Center for Atmospheric Research, needed a solution that resulted in his manufacturing his own custom Pockels cells. With that flagship product, Meadowlark Optics came to be, establishing a world standard for innovative, ultrahigh-quality polarization optics.
In the twenty-first century, Meadowlark products help position customers worldwide to pioneer their own innovations. These include our advances in liquid crystals with one-of-a-kind polarization controllers and the Liquid Crystal Stokes Polarimeter. In other areas, we measure our waveplate product line to subnanometer precision. One thousandth of a wave of retardance is our standard accuracy.
Custom retooling of an existing Meadowlark product or creating the new products our customers need are other ways we serve manufacturing and science. Our current work in polarization, as our beginnings with the Pockels cells once were, is steeped in technological possibility that is yet to unfold, and this is why we are committed to our customers.
PIKE Technologies was established in 1989 by Phil and Irene Brierley with the goal of creating a unique enterprise specializing in the imaginative design and creation of high quality custom spectroscopic accessories. Today, PIKE continues to specialize in the development and manufacture of accessories and optical systems that enhance the performance of commercial spectrometers. The product line has grown from the first PIKE Horizontal ATR, which set the industry price/performance standard, to over two thousand products.
PIKE products are used in the petrochemical, food, forensic, pharmaceutical, semiconductor, agriculture, government and the material science industries as well as in many academic institutions around the world. They can be used for the analysis of organic and inorganic materials by FTIR, NIR, Raman and UV-VIS spectroscopy. Theory, detailed descriptions, and applications for PIKE accessories are available in our comprehensive product catalog. PIKE also specializes in the design and engineering of products for custom applications.
