Custom fabricated ZnS lenses and windows that are comparable to Cleartran® for use in high precision multispectral military vision systems have been introduced by Laser Research Optics of Providence, Rhode Island.
Laser Research ZnS Lenses and Windows can be supplied in plano-concave, plano-convex, meniscus, and flat configurations in sizes from 0.5” to 3.0” O.D. or diagonal for use in military vision and thermal imaging systems. They are ideally suited for single aperture, high performance multispectral systems that must perform over a broad spectrum from 0.4 to 12 microns.
Featuring λ/4 and λ/10 surfaces and finishes to 10-5 scratch-dig, Laser Research ZnS Lenses and Windows are manufactured using Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) which provides enhanced clarity, hardness, and scratch-resistance. Fabricated with typical tolerances of ±0.001” to ±0.005” and thickness to ±0.002”, these optics conform to MIL-PRF-13830.
Laser Research ZnS Lenses and Windows are priced according to material, configuration, and quantity.
