Silicon Optical Components are used in a variety of infrared applications operating in the 1.2 - 7μm wavelength range, including NIR imaging or IR spectroscopy. Silicon’s low density (2.329 g/cm3) is ideal for use in weight-sensitive applications. Silicon features a Knoop hardness of 1150, making Silicon Optical Components harder, less brittle alternatives to comparable Germanium Optical Components.
Infrared lens is widely used in image sensor, medical and detector applications. Silicon and Germanium are our favor material in this production line. We also can provide AR coating on this IR application. Our engineers can design special focusing systems upon your requirement.
