ASE Optics was founded in 1994 to provide optical engineering support for companies who can’t find, can’t afford, or can’t justify having an optical engineer on staff. We have provided optical engineering services to over 200 different clients, ranging from government agencies to Fortune 500 companies.


Drawing on the depth of optical talent in the Rochester, New York region, our team has the expertise to tackle the most complex of challenges. Our highly skilled Ph.D, M.S, and B.S level engineers have extensive experience in applying theoretical knowledge to practical systems and solutions. Our focus is on innovative, cost-effective designs, and we enjoy solving problems with creativity and collaboration.


ASE’s unique Discovery Service helps customers better understand both their problem and our ability to solve it. Many times we find a complete solution during the discovery phase. Your time is a precious commodity, so we work to complete our Discovery Service contracts in less than 3 weeks. This ensures that our Discovery Service provides a quick and valuable product at a reasonable cost.


As part of Rochester Precision Optics and its extensive manufacturing capabilities, ASE Optics can design, prototype and produce your product in both low and high volumes.
