Codex International has introduced custom lenses and windows made from zinc selenide, zinc sulfide, fused silica, germanium, silicon, and other materials for a myriad of applications.
Codex Internaitonal can be supplied plano-convex, plano-concave, and as wedged-windows in round, rectangle, and square shapes that can include steps, holes, and other special features. Made from ZnSe, ZnS, fused silica, germanium, silicon, and other materials, they are well suited for laser, imaging system, machine vision, and opto-mechanical applications.
Manufactured in sizes from 0.5″ to 5″ O.D. and supplied with various A/R coatings, as required, Codex Internaitonal Optics can be fabricated in a variety of thicknesses with typical dimensional tolerances of ±0.001 to ±0.005″. Conforming to ISO-10110 specifications, surface finishes of 10 waves to 1/10th wave flatness and 10-5 to 80-50 scratch-dig can be provided.applications.
The University of Rochester research lab that recently used lasers to create unsinkable metallic structures has now demonstrated how the same technology could be used to create highly efficient solar power generators.Lire la suite
Thin-film optics is the branch of optics that focuses on thin, structured layers of different materials. These layers range from a fraction of a nanometer up to several micrometers thick but are usually in the order of the wavelengths of ultraviolet light, which is about 500nm. Their synthesis is controlled via deposition, with one or more layers of material layered onto the substrate, usually via physical vapor deposition.Lire la suite
