Meller optical domes are fabricated from sapphire, quartz, glass, silicon and germanium in sizes up to 100mm diameter with included angles to 160 degrees and dimensional tolerances to +/-10 microns. Manufactured on a highly repeatable 5-axis spherical machining center, they exhibit less than 25 microns wall thickness variation.
Featuring surface accuracy to less than 1 fringe measured at 633nm and finishes to 20-10 scratch-dig per MIL-PRF-13830, Meller optical domes are well suited for a wide variety of applications including high speed missile domes, viewports, and other front surface optics requirements.
Optical Domes are priced according to material, size, part, geometry and quantity.
Various Configurations can be custom fabricated to customer requirements and specifications
