Optical Microscopes with Greater Resolution and More Depth of Field

Important News: Change of product lines at Grayfield Optical, Inc.
Update: October 21, 2016

We previously offered a range of microscopes from a German inventor. We are now no longer offering these microscopes as the inventor, who is now 80 years old, has told us he can no longer supply them to us.

He specifically requested us to remove his name and existing products from our website, which we have done to respect his privacy. We wish to thank him for all he has done in the past including his development work on the series of microscopes we have been offering in the past.

Effective August 2014, Grayfield Optical is now working with the inventor's engineering team, who have been working with the same microscope technology for decades, are considerably younger and fully up-to-date with the latest microscope technologies including the latest digital measurment systems. Our nano-positioning system was developed by this team, for example.

We are now preparing to release an entirely new series of microscopes, under the SeeNano name, which enables us to provide you with microscopes that have all the capabilities of the previous series, while adding fluorescence capabilities and realistic pricing. Development work is progressing well and we have started to get into the costing phase so that we are able to price these new microscopes.

We would like to thank the large number of people contacting us to enquire about our new range. We are working hard to perfect things so that when are new range is ready, it will be better and more affordable than anything we have ever offered, before. We will ensure our new microscopes are built to the highest quality standards, that you would expect from "Made in Germany" with optical capabilities that are second to none.

We had to further delay the release of the new series as our engineers came up with a way of further improving the electronics including a unique new illumination system which would enable us to reduce the costs,  yet considerably improve the illumination system along with a number of other improvments we thought of. This will make our systems considerably better than any other optical microscopes on the market, while approaching price ranges only a little higher than conventional high quality optical microscopes.

Our new product stategy will be to have an affordable basic model that can be expanded with a range of options. That is, our new microscopes can be upgraded from the basic version up to the highest level simply by upgrading or adding the relevant components. We are currently working on the design and manufacture of these components for release in the January 2017.

Sorry to those who have been waiting so long for this, but the new range of microscopes will be more than worth the wait. 

The biggest problem with our earlier microscope range was the high price and build time. We have been working hard to get those issues solved, yet have microscope systems that are even better than before.
Our previous systems were purely optical microscopes. Our new systems make much more use of modern electronics to add a range of new features.

We thank you for your patience.

Please use the Contact Us form below, and we will then inform you as soon as or new microscopes are available.

We are currently updating this website, so please excuse any confusing text, references or images during this process.

Please note: All technical details are subject to change without notice, while we work on our new microscope range.

Unsatisfied with the capabilities of existing light microscopes, it was decided to investigate why the resolution, color contrast and depth of field is so limited. This research led to the discovery of a unique new way of building microscopes which no longer suffered many of the constraints of existing optical theory. We found that by using a different approach to optics and a new mathematical approach, we could build microscopes with a large "cylinder of sharpness" (depth of field) and a true resolution of 100nm, while maintaining full contour sharpness and true colors without the need for staining, oil immersion, etc. This Grayfield Lens System is the basis of all our future optical systems.

The GLS technology has also been used to develop objectives for extreme image reduction, a quantum leap in the nano lithography of critical dimensions that can be used for computer wafer production.
