PROVIDENCE, R.I, April 21, 2017 — Zinc sulfide (ZnS) optics from Laser Research Optics can be custom fabricated for use in military applications requiring a broad wavelength spectrum and high fracture strength.
The optics are water clear, transmit over a broad wavelength spectrum from 0.45 to 12 μm, and are offered as windows, lenses and domes. Manufactured using Hot Isostatic Pressing, which provides enhanced clarity, hardness and scratch resistance, they conform to MIL- PRF-13830 and are suitable for many military vision system applications.
Ideally suited for single-aperture, high-performance, multi-spectral systems, the ZnS optics can be fabricated in sizes from 0.5 to 3 in. in diameter or diagonal.
