  • IR Lens Assembly for Thermal Imaging
Apr 2007
LightPath Technologies Inc.Request Info
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.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually spherical) that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays from an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
1. A generic term for detector. 2. A complete optical/mechanical/electronic system that contains some form of radiation detector.
