Aspheric lenses precision molded in IR glass for use in the short-wave, mid-wave, and long-wave infrared (SWIR, MWIR, LWIR) bands, for applications such as collimation, focusing, and coupling of quantum cascade lasers (QCL).
SWIR/MWIR/LWIR collimating lenses have high numerical apertures. This allows for maximum light collection for SWIR, MWIR and LWIR lasers, including quantum cascade lasers (QCL). The aspheric design enables a single lens to replace complex, multiple component optical systems and provide high quality infrared beams for sensing and analytical measurements.
Infrared collimating lenses can also be molded directly into metal housings, eliminating the need to use epoxy to assemble the lenses. Housing materials such as SS304L, SS316, AL6061, and Inconel 718 are available. Molding into metal housings simplifies the mounting process while providing a hermetic seal between the lens and the rest of the package.
