UV and IR Optics
Substrates and finished optical components - windows, lenses and mirrors made from lithium fluoride (LiF), magnesium fluoride (MgF2), calcium fluoride (CaF2), barium fluoride (BaF2), sapphire (Al2O3), zinc selenide (ZnSe), copper (Cu), germanium (Ge) and silicon (Si) for laser and optical instruments applications in UV and IR wavelength ranges.
The optical material used for cross-polarized wave (XPW) generation is Barium Fluoride (BaF2) crystal with z () or holographic () crystallographic orientation. We offer  orientation crystals for XPW generation.
Zinc selenide (ZnSe) is the most popular material for infrared applications. Due to a very wide transmission range covering 0.6-22 µm chemical vapor deposition grown ZnSe as a high optical quality material is used to manufacture optical components.
Due to a very wide transmission range covering 0.6-22 µm chemical vapor deposition grown ZnSe as a high optical quality material is used to manufacture optical components (windows, mirrors, lenses) for high power IR lasers.
Coated silicon substrates are commonly used as mirrors for CO2 lasers. Its advantages are good durability, thermal stability and relatively low cost. The total reflectors are used as rear reflectors and fold mirrors and externally as beam benders
