Silicon PCX Lenses
May 2011Edmund Optics Inc.Request Info
TechSpec silicon planoconvex (PCX) lenses manufactured by Edmund
Optics Inc. are suitable for use in weight-sensitive infrared applications from
3 to 5 μm, for near-infrared imaging and infrared spectroscopy, with density
less than half that of germanium or zinc selenide. The lenses feature precision-polished
surfaces with a positive focal length and with one flat and one convex surface.
They are designed for orientation with the plano (flat) surface facing toward the
desired focal plane, are available in focal lengths from 25 to 250 mm and are offered
uncoated. They also may be coated with a wide range of the company’s custom
infrared coatings. The lenses are manufactured from low-density silicon and are
suitable for use in the 1.2- to 7-μm wavelength range.
