PERFECTLENS ™ MOLDED CHALCOGENIDE ASPHERES
24 Jul 2020
Archer OpTx is now using the PerfectLens™ glass molding process utilizing high quality, non-arsenic based chalcogenide materials to produce high performance infrared aspheric and aspheric-diffractive lenses.
The high quality 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 optical glasses made by Ohara; the addition of non-arsenic based chalcogenide IR materials extends the availability of ultra-precision molded optics to wavelengths of 13um. 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!
