  • Optical Glass

    Description: Optical Glass
    Type: BK7
    Hardness:
    RFI: 1.52
    Misc Info: This is the most commonly used optical glass in industrial production. As such it is widely available and cost efficient for typical optical component production
  • Optical Glass

    Description: Optical Glass
    Type: N SF11
    Hardness:
    RFI: 1.78
    Misc Info: N-SF11 is a high refractive index material.
  • Optical Material

    Description: Optical Material
    Type: Acrylic
    Hardness:
    RFI: 1.49
    Misc Info: Optical acrylic has similar properties as glass with a lower RFI but a greatly reduced weight
  • IR Optics

    Description: IR Optics
    Type: Silicon
    Hardness:
    RFI: 3.42
    Misc Info: Silicon optical components are used for infrared, low - light or no-light applications. It is the preferred lens and window material for high performance infrared imaging systems in the 3-5 µm wavelength band. 
  • IR Optics

    Description: IR Optics
    Type: Germanium
    Hardness:
    RFI: 4.01
    Misc Info: Silicon optical components are used for infrared, low - light or no-light applications. It is the preferred lens and window material for high performance infrared imaging systems in the 3-5 µm wavelength band. 
  • Laser Collimator

    Description: Laser Collimator
    Type: Zinc Selenide
    Hardness:
    RFI: 2.67
    Misc Info: ZnSe lenses are primarily used as collimators for laser applications. Because of its low absorption coeffcicient, ZnSe is ideal for CO2 lasers applications.
  • Optical Window

    Description: Optical Window
    Type: Sapphire
    Hardness: 9
    RFI:
    Misc Info: Extremely hard material. Used for optical windows such as lens covers or mobile phone cover glass.
  • Optical Window

    Description: Optical Window
    Type: Quartz
    Hardness: 7
    RFI:
    Misc Info: Quartz is used in optics applications due to its extreme environmental durability and toughness. Quartz's high transmissivity and toughness make it an ideal material for extreme rugedness optical windows. 
  • Gorilla Glass

    Description: Gorilla Glass
    Type: Aluminosilicate
    Hardness: 7
    RFI:
    Misc Info: Chemically hardened glass. The special manufacturing process makes the glass harder and more resistant to shattering. Glass is manufactured by adding various levels of aluminum silicate.
