Nov 2009Meller Optics Inc.Request Info
IR and broadband optics from Meller Optics Inc. can be made from sapphire and spinel for harsh environments, from germanium for detector and sensor applications, from zinc selenide and -sulfide for laser and forward-looking infrared applications, from calcium- and magnesium fluoride for nonhygroscopic front surface applications, and from silicon for mirrors and reflectors. A variety of antireflection, partial- and total reflective coatings are available, all conforming to MIL-PRF-13830. They are available in planoconvex, -concave and meniscus configurations with λ/4 and λ/10 surfaces and finishes to 10-5 scratch-dig. They can be produced with outer diameters from 1/4 to 6 in., or diagonal with tolerances to ±0.005 in. and thickness to ±0.002.
