|If you need IR and broadband optics for a specific application, check with Meller Optics, Inc. of Providence, Rhode Island. They specialize in custom fabricating windows, lenses, mirrors, and prisms in prototype through production quantities from a wide range of optical materials.
Meller IR and Broadband Optics can be fabricated from sapphire and spinel for demanding environments, germanium for detector and sensor applications, zinc selenide and -sulfide for laser and FLIR applications, calcium- and magnesium fluoride for non-hygroscopic front surface applications, and from silicon for mirrors and reflectors. Conforming to MIL-PRF-13830, a wide variety of A/R, partial- and total reflective coatings are available.
Featuring plano convex, concave, and meniscus configurations with λ/4 and λ10 surfaces and finishes to 10-5 scratch-dig, Meller IR and Broadband Optics can be produced in sizes from 1/4” to 6” O.D. or diagonal with tolerances to ±0.005” and thickness to ±0.002”, depending upon material.
Meller IR and Broadband Optics are priced according to material, configura-tion, and quantity. Literature and price quotes are available upon request.
