DIAMOND SA is an international company headquartered in Switzerland, since many decades active in the fiber optics domain. Diamond successfully focuses its core business on the design, the manufacture and the assembly of both standard and custom fiber optic connectivity solutions. Our Active Core Alignment (ACA) technology allows for incomparable optical performances, including the lowest insertion loss.  Thanks to the development of specific products such as the AVIO, Diamond entered the Space community in the mid-90s; the AVIM connector family shortly followed. The recognized heritage of the AVIM connector was indispensable for further development, resulting in the Mini-AVIM connector. Since 2004, Diamond maintains a strict collaboration with ESA. In 2017, this common effort produced the publication of the first Space qualification standard for optical connectors. We encourage you to read our show preview, visit our Booth during the conference and discuss your applications with our specialists: www.diamond-fo.com/icso/


Dynamic Optics aims to become a technology leader in adaptive optics technologies. Recent advances in imaging and laser processing techniques are increasingly requiring optical systems to be tuned in accordance with the specific configuration in which optics are used.
