Research Papers are available to learn about industrial and academic research involving our products.



Paradigm Optics can create unique strands of plastic in various shapes and materials on a very small scale.
These may be combined into complex, multifunction fiber structures for medical, communication, inspection, and liquid
transport applications. It is straightfoward to contract with Paradigm Optics to obtain tailored polymer solutions that cannot be found elsewhere.


Paradigm Optics is your source for innovative polymer fiber, capillary, and hybrid structures and devices for just about any application. Have an idea for a new product? Contact us to discuss your needs..
