ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 25, 2008 – Navitar has unveiled its newest group of lenses for their short wave infrared (SWIR) cameras. These fixed focal length lenses include two 25mm designs, a 35 mm and a 50 mm design.

SWIR imaging applications require the optical system to efficiently transmit light in the visible, NIR and SWIR wavelengths.  In order to accomplish this task, the lens design and coatings must be capable of maintaining a high level of transmission throughout a broad wavelength range. Navitar’s SWIR lenses are capable of offering high resolution images in conditions ranging from bright day light, fog and haze, twilight and dusk. SWIR.jpg

The new SWIR lenses are constructed for rugged environments and come standard with thumb screws for locking the focus and iris functions. Designed to cover 1” (16mm diagonal) sensors, the lenses offer high resolution images and transmission in the 700nm -1900nm wavelength of 75 percent or better.

These lenses are ideal for a variety of imaging applications where SWIR cameras are employed, such as perimeter surveillance, food sorting, toll-way monitoring,
border and port security, quality control or aerial imaging.

 “We have seen significant growth in the SWIR camera market and as a result have designed solutions to serve this expanding market,” says Craig Fitzgerald, vice president of product development for Navitar. “Navitar is preparing to be the leader in SWIR imaging optics and we will continue to add more lens designs to round out this family of solutions.”

GLOSSARY
photonics
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...
