OMT Solutions

OMT Solutions BV is a R&D company situated on the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. OMT Solutions offers an extensive package of products and services, such as:

• Characterization of architectural and automotive glazing
• Characterization of patterned and diffuse glass
• Calibration of reference materials
• Optical Measurements and Testing of materials for Space applications
• Variable Angle Spectroscopy
• Refractive index measurements
• Determining optical and thermal radiation properties of materials
• BRDF/BTDF measurements
• Thin Film analysis and design
• Training, Conferences & Workshops

The facilities at OMT Solutions include spectrophotometers and tools that enable us to perform various optical measurements in a wavelength range between 175 nm and 56,000 nm, covering the entire solar energy and thermal radiation range.

Based on many years of experience and knowledge on performing measurements on the highest possible level of accuracy, using techniques and tools that we have developed ourselves, we are able to offer not only our services as a measurement laboratory but also offer to build customized solutions for our customers that are interested in performing these state–of-the-art measurements themselves.

New optical measurement setup for Space applications

February 6, 2021

For Space applications a new optical measurement setup is created to measure the refractive index at cryogenic temperatures (40K-350K) in a large wavelength range (185-15.000 nm).

Variable angle spectroscopy

October 22, 2020

In our lab and cleanroom we have a range of spectrophotometers, spectrophotometer accessories, custom made measurement setups and solutions to measure the optical properties of all kind of materials under different circumstances (cryogenic temperatures, very high temperatures, vacuum, different angles of incidence etc.).  Read more

Refractive Index Measurements

September 12, 2020

OMT Solutions uses several techniques to determine the refractive index of materials. One of their unique setups is the Cryogenic Optical Test facility. This facility has the capability for measuring the refractive index of materials with accuracies up to 10-6 at temperatures in the range of 35K – 400 K and wavelengths in the range of 250 nm – 25,000 nm, using different spectrophotometers.
