Optical Components

Optics is one of the most productive fields of modern science. Many innovative solutions of problems in science and industry rely on optical technologies. But even the most innovative product as well as the brightest experimental setup depend on reliable components manufactured with proven technologies.

Who we are

Bernhard Halle founded his optical workshop in 1873, the same year in which Ernst Abbe published his theory of the microscope. The first products were crystal optics for polarization microscopes. The product range soon was extended to all kinds of mirrors and prisms complemented with the design and production of lens systems.



How can we help you

The company Bernhard Halle Nachfl. GmbH continues this tradition until today. The subtitle "Optical Workshop" refers to our concept: Great experience with in-house optics manufacturing paired with our competence to develop new solutions gives our customers a significant advantage in realizing their ideas in optics.
