 Innovations and Real World Applications

Optodyne, Inc. has a rich history starting with our founder and Caltech scientist, Dr. Charles Wang.  Dr. Wang spent years working on advanced and high power lasers, pointing and tracking and on President Reagan’s Star War Program before founding Optodyne, Inc. in 1986.

Dr. Wang became familiar with conventional Michelson interferometers to make accurate measurements and other applications. Using this extensive knowledge base of lasers and interferometers, Dr. Wang invented the Laser Doppler Displacement Meter (LDDM), making it easier to use and dramatically reducing the physical size of laser optic measurement systems.

When setting up to take a measurement, the compact patented single aperture LDDM only requires the alignment of the Doppler laser beam between the source (laser) and the small target (retroreflector), totally eliminating the need for the alignment of the additional and complex interferometer beam splitters and setting up of heavy tripods.  These two primary features has increased the applications of lasers in precision measurements and effectively making conventional interferometer lasers obsolete in same applications. 

As a multi-million dollar company, we have been trusted and chosen by industry leaders worldwide for more than 25 years. All of our products are designed to improve the speed, efficiency and convenience of the machine tools industry, OEM and other niche industrial customers requiring precision measurements.

Optodyne, Inc. is also an industry leader in the development of PC-based, user-friendly metrology data collection, analysis software and automatic generation of compensation files for CNC controllers. In addition, our patented 3D Vector Sequential Measurement is poised for industry-wide adaptation as more CNC controllers become enhanced with volumetric compensation.

All Optodyne products are developed and manufactured in our Rancho Dominguez, California, USA facilities.
