IQ Structures is an advanced technology company focusing on development and mass production of special micro- and nano-structures that give materials and products unique properties and functions. Such precisely calculated nano-structures can turn a simple plastic into a fully functional optical component, anti-counterfeiting element or other high-value industrial product.
NANOPTIQS is a brand for revolutionary nano-structured optical components that use completely new approach to design and mass production. Such elements are smaller, thinner, and lighter in mass and dimensions and at the same time very precise in light control.The main opportunities they bring to the market: New design options of luminaires
Huge flexibility in functional applications
Possibility of miniaturization of the luminaires
A highly productive way of producing optics while saving material, time and energy
