Our domes are available in sizes from 5 mm to over 200 mm Ø, with custom sizes possible on request.

BK7 or fused silica is a good choice for an optical dome that will be used in situations where only visible light must be transmitted; for instance, on camera sensor or for meteorology applications. BK7 has good chemical durability, and provides excellent transmission for the 300 nm to 2 µm wavelength range.

For UV-range light transmission, UV-grade fused silica is available. Our fused silica domes can withstand high pressure and are ideal for underwater application. This optical glass provides over 85% transmission for wavelengths up to 185 nm.

We can also manufacture acrylic domes on request. These domes offer less light scattering than BK7 or fused silica, and are still highly durable.
