Finished Infrared Optics For Biomedical, Military, And Industrial Applications Finished Infrared Optics For Biomedical, Military, And Industrial Applications

Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O) introduces finished infrared (IR) optics for a wide range of applications, including biomedical, industrial, military/defense, homeland security, surveillance systems, automotive, fire control, lasers, night vision, and more. These new optics operate from 0.75 µm, the near-infrared (NIR), out to 15 µm, the longwave-infrared (LWIR) spectrum.

Beamsplitters for High Power Laser Applications Beamsplitters for High Power Laser Applications

PG&O’s latest beamsplitters features a 200:1 extinction ratio, thus maximizing the split between S&P polarization. This can be a critical factor in many different high-power level tasks, particularly for optics applications up to 10J/cm2 pulsed and continuous wave.

Littrow Prisms Littrow Prisms

Littrow dispersion prisms are used to limit lasing to a specific wavelength in many optics applications. This is ideal for laser cavities, spectrographs, and other optical systems in which it is critical that a specified wavelength not be exceeded when a sample (tissue or otherwise) is subjected to a laser’s light.

Precision Cutting/Scribing on Thin Flat Glass Substrates Precision Cutting/Scribing on Thin Flat Glass Substrates

Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O®), a global expert in precision optics manufacturing, optical fabrication, and precision thin film coatings, offers precision glass cutting and scribing on thin flat substrates. Specialized glass cutting and other optical fabrication capabilities are essential in a wide variety of microelectronic applications.
