Knight Optical's LiDAR Optical Components for Atmospheric Sensing

11 Dec 2019

Knight Optical is well-versed in the developments within the LiDAR industry. With a vast range of LiDAR Optics suitable for the sector, our optical expertise and high-quality components are frequently deployed for high-specification applications. Such innovations include autonomous driving technologies and systems for atmospheric sensing. Particularly for the latter, our range of Transmit and Receive Windows and Mirrors have been proving popular amongst engineers and R&D professionals working on such high-tech applications. 

 Whether your device uses the visible, near-infrared (NIR) [0.9 to 1.5µm] or Mid-Waveband InfraRed (MWIR) [3 to 5µm] wavelengths, Knight Optical offers a range of LiDAR Optical Components, such as Transmit and Receive Windows and mirrors, ideally suited to a range of atmospheric sensing LiDAR systems. 

 As well as custom-made options – allowing you to specify dimensions, shapes, sizes and coatings – for glass and mirrors, we also stock a wide range of components for quick turnaround times, in sizes from 5mm to 300mm in diameter; and between 0.5mm to 15mm thick.  

 Typical specs:

Material: BK7 (or equivalent), Borosilicate, Quartz, Fused Silica, Sapphire (AL2O3)

Diameter tolerance: +0.0/-0.20 mm

Length/width tolerance: +/- 0.10mm

Thickness tolerance: +/-0.10mm

Wavelength range: 0.17-5.5µm

Transmission: Tavg=85% (dependent on substrate thickness)

 First-Class Quality 

Quality is the driving force behind Knight Optical, and to ensure you profit from high-precision optics, we take the utmost care to ensure every component accurately meets your specifications. Offering unparalleled service, Knight Optical undertakes a full inspection of your optics from our ISO 9001:2015-certified, state-of-the-art Metrology Laboratory, followed by a meticulous visual examination by our dedicated QA department.
