Precision Apertures From Graticules Optics
27 Feb 2020
The optical industries demand for better quality apertures, has led Graticules Optics to introduce high definition pinholes and slits. Made to standard or custom designs, these precision apertures have excellent edge definition and exceptional shape accuracy.
With uses in refractometers and other devices, our apertures provide a well-defined image without beam scatter (essential in quality laser benches). Ideal in the field of spectrometry, that demands high resolution spectrometer entrance slits, for greater wavelength definition.
The processes of electroforming foil products and vacuum deposition for glass products, are used to manufacture the aperture pattern required, with a very high degree of accuracy and repeatability.
Aperture sizes start from 1 micron for pinholes and 10 micron width for slits. Multiple and strip apertures can be supplied to customer specifications. Graticules Optics manufacture apertures in many types of metal foils and they can be fixed in mounts for added rigidity.
An alternative production technique where chrome is vacuum deposited on glass can provide users with aperture patterns of very high complexity.
Whatever the requirement, our dedicated staff and skilled technicians are here to help you.
