Jenoptik Extends Diamond-Turning Capabilities to US

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
JUPITER, Fla., May 27, 2010 — With the installation of equipment in its manufacturing operations, Jenoptik Optical Systems Inc. has announced the extension of its diamond turning capabilities to its US-based operations.
This will expand the overall custom optics capabilities of Jenoptik in the US and minimize effects from import and export agencies such as ITAR in the US and from licensing agencies such as BAFA in Germany. The Jupiter facility will be capable of diamond turning infrared materials including germanium, calcium fluoride, zinc sulfide, zinc selenide, aluminum and chalcogenide glass.

The US-based capabilities complement those of Jenoptik AG in Jena, Germany.

Jenoptik Optical Systems Inc. formed after Jenoptik merged its subsidiaries Coastal Optical Systems, Liebmann Optical Co. and, later, MEMS Optical and Jenoptik Polymer Systems. Its markets include life sciences research, defense, semiconductor manufacturing, digital projection, optical metrology and astronomical research.

The scientific observation of celestial radiation that has reached the vicinity of Earth, and the interpretation of these observations to determine the characteristics of the extraterrestrial bodies and phenomena that have emitted the radiation.
calcium fluoride
An optical material used in place of crown glass to produce lenses with extraordinary correction of chromatic aberrations. Its high coefficient of thermal expansion and its tendency to absorb moisture limit its range of application.
chalcogenide glass
An infrared-transmitting material used in optical fibers for applications in the wavelength region from 2 to 11 µm.
A crystalline semiconductor material that transmits in the infrared.
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
zinc sulfide
A polycrystalline material that transmits in the infrared; it is used as a phosphor in x-ray and television screens.
