UV Ground Glass Diffusers

Optical diffusers alter the divergence of incident light.  Knight Optical provide a range of stock UV grade ground glass diffusers however are capable of supplying custom UV grade ground glass diffusers to your specific requirement.

Custom UV grade ground glass diffusers scatter light at angles up to about 10°.  Custom UV grade ground diffusers are utilised in two main applications, firstly for focussing and secondly to enhance illumination uniformly in UV lighting systems.  Knight Optical offer custom UV grade fused silica ground glass diffusers which work down to 175nm in the UV.   Custom UV Grade Fused Silica Ground Glass Diffusers can be offered in large sizes up to 300mm dia and in any thickness.  These can be made to any bespoke shape, diameter, square or rectangle either with cut and chamfered edges or fine ground to meet your specific custom UV grade diffuser requirement.  The ground surface can be custom ground diffused to your specific grade although 40 micron grit size covers most applications.
If your UV wavelength application goes no further into the UV than 270nm Quartz glass can be used where sheets of 1000x1000mm are available.

In addition to design and entertainment applications UV diffusers are used in tradition UV imaging techniques and for the control of UV illumination for optical sensing and military instrumentation and imaging applications.

Knight Optical supply high quality custom UV diffusers made to our exact specification. Every component is individually tested on our Agilent Cary 5000 spectrophotometer fitted with UMA and DRA devices which operates from 175nm to 3200nm.  Our Agilent 660 FTIR spectrophotometer is used for testing materials between 3.5µm and 45µm.  All tested by our highly skilled technicians in our state of art metrology lab to ensure all components meet our high quality standards.
