CHESHAM, England, Nov. 22, 2017 — Lens developer Resolve Optics Ltd. has announced that a leading global nuclear systems integrator has ordered a second batch of its Model 357 non-browning zoom lens.

Model 357 lensesThis unique lens is designed to provide true HD-quality images over an unrivaled 10× zoom range.

"We are delighted to receive this second order of Model 357 lenses,” said Mark Pontin, managing director of Resolve Optics. "The nuclear systems integrator sought a high-resolution lens [that is] able to withstand the high levels of radiation encountered in reprocessing facilities but also provide a clear crisp image for their 1/3-in. rad-hard color CMOS cameras. We believe that the Model 357 is helping them provide an unmatched clear view monitoring system to further improve the safety of nuclear reprocessing plants.”

Using specialist non-browning glasses, the Model 357 is able to produce clear, sharp images free of the strong yellow tint that has traditionally been a limiting issue when using radiation-resistant lenses on color sensors. The Model 357 HD 10× zoom lens has been designed to operate in environments subject to high-level radiation such as nuclear fuel handling, reactor active zones and nuclear waste storage plants. The non-browning glass used in the Model 357 is proven to withstand long-term exposure to radiation up to a dose of 100,000,000 radians and temperatures to 55 °C without discoloration.

Operating at f/2, the Model 357 provides high image resolution and minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 770 nm and can image objects from 800 mm to infinity without using add-on adapters. When focused at infinity, the lens achieves high image resolution on axis at full aperture throughout the zoom range without refocusing.

Resolve Optics is a developer of custom optical design and OEM quantity special lenses for small and large high technology businesses.
