Type Standard

Potassium Bromide (KBr) is a crystalline compound of potassium and bromide with a rock-salt type structure. It is used in optical applications in the UV, Visible, MWIR, and LWIR waveband regions. KBr has a melting point of 730°C and must be used in a moisture-free environment as the polished surfaces degrade in a moist atmosphere.

The IR grade of Potassium Bromide (KBr) can be used as the windows for Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectroscopy. The wavelength extends from 0.23 to 25µm with a high value of transmission. This transmission averages about 90% from 0.3 to 20µm.

Knight Optical supply quality custom-made infrared optics using Potassium Bromide to your specification. Every component is individually tested by our highly skilled technicians in our state of the art metrology lab to ensure all components meet our high quality standards.
