Discover Your New IR PerfectLens™

Chalcogenide Aspheres
Archer OpTx is now using the PerfectLens™ glass molding process with Schott’s IRG series of chalcogenide materials to produce high performance infrared aspheric and aspheric-diffractive lenses. The high quality of Schott IRG series of chalcogenide materials coupled with the ultra-precision molding and automation by Archer OpTx brings reduced cost along with higher performance.

For more than 10 years, Archer OpTx has been using the PerfectLens™ process to mold 35 different Ohara optical glasses; the addition of Schott chalcogenide IR materials extends the availability of ultra-precision molded optics to wavelengths of 12um. The infrared industry now has a high volume ultra-precision alternative to infrared lenses made through traditional production techniques.

The available aspheric shapes include bi-aspheric meniscus or bi-aspheric convex-convex; you can also integrate diffractive features to further optimize your optical performance. In any case, our manufacturing and optical design teams are available to ensure your success!
