Silicon optical components for Infra-Red imaging systems

Knight Optical can offer Silicon (Si) Optics for Infra-red systems over the waveband of 1.2 to 15µm. We offer Si optics for NIR (1.2 to 2µm) and Mid-waveband Infra-Red (MWIR, 3 to 5µm) Imaging Systems. Si has hardness of about HK1150, which makes it a better choice for windows, which is its primary use, and outer elements of lens systems. Si has a good transmission in the MWIR band, and can be used with optical glass in the NIR, and with Germanium or Zinc Selenide in the MWIR, to form well corrected doublets and lens systems.
