Edmund Optics Inc.Request Info
BARRINGTON, N.J., May 27, 2008 -- Edmund Optics Inc. said its new TechSpec ultraviolet (UV) fused-silica rod lenses are highly polished small-diameter rods that provide excellent transmission from the UV into the near-infrared (NIR) and are available in diameters ranging from 1 to 5 mm and in eight lengths from 2 to 20 mm.

TechSpecFusedSilica.jpgThe fused-silica rod lenses are manufactured with precise diameters and are polished on the circumference and ground on both sides, the company said. When illuminated they act as a cylinder lens, focusing collimated light into a line.

Fused silica offers high transmission in the UV and through the NIR and low coefficient of thermal expansion for use in applications such as biomedical instrumentation, UV microscopy and laser scanning, among others, Edmund Optics said. Prices start at $59 and volume pricing is available.

fused silica
Glass consisting of almost pure silicon dioxide (SiO2). Also called vitreous silica. Frequently used in optical fibers and windows.
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...
