Knight Optical’s Barium Fluoride Optics for Medical Imaging

16 Oct 2022

Knight Optical can offer Barium Fluoride Optics for use within Medical Imaging.

We supply a range of Barium Fluoride Optics for a range of applications.  All individually QA checked and metrology tested for quality to ensure parts meet customer specification.  Supplied in a range of sizes and shapes with custom coatings tailored to meet your individual applications.

Knight Optical supply precision optical components to customers in the medical industry for applications such as medical thermology and thermography. Barium fluoride optics are used in the detection and screening of breast cancer and for screening for atypical pneumonia (SARS) and monitoring respiratory conditions.

Due to barium fluoride’s high radiation resistance, it is ideal for use in high radiation (x-ray/gamma rays) environments. Other applications include cryogenically cooled thermal imaging systems, infrared spectroscopy and high energy neutron detection.
