LightPath Technologies is pleased to introduce an f/1.3, 14.9-mm focal length infrared (IR) lens assembly designed for uncooled IR sensors. These lenses are designed as the primary optics for thermal imagers in a wide variety of applications including: homeland security, firefighting, predictive maintenance and driver’s vision enhancement systems in automobiles. These new lens assemblies integrate LightPath’s exclusive Black Diamond molded lenses, which are a lower cost substitute for high volume diamond-turned optics. The passive athermalized design provides temperature stability without adding additional cost. “LightPath is excited to bring molded lens technologies to the infrared. Molded lens technologies will enable the low-cost mass production of IR lenses and help drive the growing thermal imaging markets,” said Ken Brizel, CEO and president of LightPath.
