About us

AKmira optronics develops miniaturized 3D scanners with applications in 3D endoscopy/ medical technology. The technology – new outside the academic environment – is based on digital, optical holography which can be regarded as extension of more widely known interference methods like OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) or Interference microscopy. Inherent advantages are for e.g.:

  • Scanning of 3D objects, also low structured object surfaces
  • Optical stitching over much larger regions as compared to the scanning window
  • Hand movement or hand tremor has no negative impact on scanner performance
  • RGB color information with microscopic resolution
  • No moving parts within the 3D scanner

The founder and CEO Dr. Alexander Knüttel has introduced the digital, optical holography, which is brand new in the industrial environment. Its miniaturized scanner modules serve various market segments within medical technology. Goal is a substantial miniaturization down to volumes with few mm edge length in all dimensions. Full color information as well as further measurement modalities in sub-surface mode will be integrated.

Our team size is rapidely growing with various technological disciplines available in this challenging environment. Headquarter is Potsdam/ Germany. Complementary disciplines are also available in our network in Mannheim/ Germany. Our slogan is: Jump – and make sure your wings grow (Ray Bradburry)

Our Technology

The basic technology of AKmira optronics is based on digital optical holography, which is an extension of well known optical interference methods. In common is a (partially) coherent light source whose optical wavefront will be split towards the object and a reference mirror. After reflection from the object, the altered wavefront will be combined with the deterministic wavefront from the reference mirror to form 2D interference patterns. Those will be acquired by a camera with high repetition rate to provide inline information about the 3D object after high-speed computing.
