Infrared materials

From simple glass to exotic, we have plenty of knowledge and experience to help you create IR optical products. Working closely with the key IR material suppliers and National Laboratories in the world, we are able to keep advanced and high quality IR materials. For imaging applications in the infrared region at 1-14 µm, properties of the materials used are extremely important. Most of the optical materials used in the visible spectrum are not suitable for IR use. It is necessary to take into account, not only the transmission character, but also the optical, mechanical, thermal and even electronic properties of the IR materials. The main properties of common IR materials of our products are summarized in the table below.
