Infrared Optics Focus On Biomedical, Military, & Industrial Apps

Precision Glass & Optics introduces finished infrared (IR) optics for a variety of commercial and defense applications. PG&O’s new fabrication capability utilizes several infrared materials, including calcium fluoride (CaF2), magnesium fluoride (MgF2), silicon (Si), germanium (Ge), and zinc sulfide (ZnS) to deliver optically-clean, polished IR materials. The new optics operate from 0.75 µm, the near-infrared (NIR), out to15 µm, the longwave-infrared (LWIR) spectrum.

 

Finished infrared optics are used extensively in a wide variety of applications, including biomedical, industrial, military/defense, homeland security, surveillance systems, automotive, fire control, lasers, night vision, and more. Dan Bukaty, Jr., president of Precision Glass & Optics, says, “In response to demand, we are delighted to now offer finished infrared optics. Selecting the best infrared optical materials is essential to producing an optimal result. We are committed to fabricating with the finest materials available, which puts us in the ideal position to meet our customer’s most critical needs.”
