Optical Lenses(for Endoscopes, Broadcasting, Surveillance, Satellites)

Provides optimal images under any circumstances,
from inside of human body to the universe

We are able to provide a broad range of optics with high quality and performance. This is realized by combination of superb lens manufacturing technology (aspherical processing, surface grinding/polishing and coating technology), imaging device design technology and evaluation technology.

High-precision Forming Technology / Optics

Evaluation technology
enables high performance

Our belief is “Lenses are never manufactured without measurement”. Utilizing our evaluation technology, we have developed extremely accurate measurement instrument in order to manufacture precise lenses which are essential for high quality and performance optics.

ASTALIFT
SAKURA AURA Powder

Base makeup series that achieves beautiful skin
by controlling reflection, transmission and
absorption of light

Similarities between sakura (cherry blossoms) and beautiful skin in the reflection, transmission, and absorption of light are analyzed by wavelength using our unique skin tomographic image analysis system. Capitalizing on the optical properties derived from the analysis, Sakura Aura Powder provides optical control through its unique combination of two powders: red powder that diffuses the light inside the skin and a white powder that reflects light evenly on the surface of the skin. It successfully stabilizes red pigment, which was difficult with conventional technology, and has three optical properties to make sakura (cherry blossoms) look beautiful.

WV (Wide View) Film

With the LCD screen viewing angle expanded
by 1.8 times, this film gives a beautiful screen view
no matter what angle you look from

Our original discotic liquid crystal coating is applied to a TAC (cellulose triacetate) base to afford a high degree of control over molecular alignment. When simply used as a polarizing protective film, viewing angle can be expanded, opening up application on all types of LCD screens.

Optical compensation by
hybrid orientation

The alignment of the polymerized discotic materials changes to the depth direction in a state of randomness, widening the viewing angle. This structure is called hybrid alignment.

Heat Shield and Insulation Film

Enhances cooling and heating efficiency with
heat shield and insulation based on silver
nanoparticle technology

Provides excellent heat shield and insulation by controlling particle size, aspect ratio and array of tabular silver nanoparticles to selectively reflect near- and far-infrared radiation. The film achieves a high transmittance rate for visible light and a transmittance rate of 99% or more for radio waves.

Grain Formation Technology / Nano Dispersion Technology / High-precision Coating Technology / Materials Chemistry

Surface plasmon resonance of silver nanoparticles

The film was realized by focusing on surface plasmon resonance, a phenomenon in which silver nanoparticles resonate with and reflect light of a given wavelength.

Anti-Reflection Film

Capable of reducing reflection while reproducing
natural colors

Reduces the broadband reflection of glass to about one-tenth of the effect without the film by applying Fujifilm’s proprietary silver nanoparticle technology. For example, the film can be applied to protective glass for museum display cases and digital signage to allow the intended content to be viewed with greater clarity.

Grain Formation Technology / Nano Dispersion Technology / High-precision Coating Technology / Materials Chemistry

Controlling the tabular silver nanoparticle layer

Tabular silver nanoparticles contained in film are applied between the base and protective layers. Silver nanoparticles retain the transmittance rates of light and radio waves with different reflectivity for two sides of the surface, while reducing reflection when viewed through one side of the surface. The film also features high curved-surface followability.

COLOR MOSAIC®

Image sensor photosensitive coloring material which can accurately cut the light of targeted wavelengths

This photosensitive coloring material is used for producing the micro color filters that are the key components of the CCD and CMOS sensors in digital cameras and mobile phones. This combines micro photosensitive polymer technology developed for photoresists with technology for the even dispersion of color pigments at an extreme fineness.

Color resist

Combining photosensitive resin and coloring agents realized the superior performance of a micro color filter offering high resolution, low noise, and faithful color reproduction.

Optical Visual Inspection System

Dramatically improves precision of visual inspection
by highlighting defects using Fujifilm’s proprietary
imaging technology and processing large volumes
of inspection images at a high speed

Fujifilm has accumulated a wealth of expertise in generating images that highlight defects, capitalizing on its experience of developing visual inspection systems for manufacturing its own products. Inspection images are shot and processed under optimal conditions for each product.

System Design / Imaging Technology / Imaging

Image processing technology
that detects defects

The system captures inspection images from every direction at 200 frames per second to detect the smallest defects and avoid mistakenly identifying defects in good products. Large volumes of images undergo high-speed processing using Fujifilm’s proprietary algorithm. The system is flexibly customizable for specific needs.
