In astronomical observations, optical filters are able to provide the wavelength selectivity needed to enable telescopes to discriminate signal from background information. These filters often require larger sizes, higher uniformity, and excellent surface quality and surface figure.
Iridian offers over 20 years of experience in producing industry leading optical telecommunication and datacom filters for terrestrial systems. Commercial satcom networks will consist of constellations of 100’s to 1000’s of satellites in an interconnected low earth orbit (LEO) mesh. Many of these systems rely on an optical intersatellite link (OISL) architecture to connect satellites via laser based optical communications. Optical filters provide wavelength selectivity to these systems addressing different functional needs from solar rejection windows to beam steering wavelength selective dichroic filters.
Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O) introduces finished infrared optics for a range of applications, including biomedical, industrial, military/defense, homeland security, surveillance systems, automotive, fire control, lasers, night vision, and more.
SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging offers a series of fiber optic faceplates designed for high-resolution, “zero thickness” image transfer applications such as CCD and CMOS coupling, LCD and OLED displays, image intensification, remote viewing, field flattening, and X-ray imaging.
Abrisa Technologies offers the SCHOTT AS 87 eco ultra-thin aluminosilicate glass for use as a cover or enhancement glass on low profile displays, touch sensors, and other display applications where thickness and weight are a concern. The glass features extremely high levels of bending and impact strength, and superior scratch resistance qualities.
Abrisa Technologies now offers the innovative High Ion-Exchange (HIE™) Asahi Glass Corporation (AGC) Dragontrail™ aluminosilicate glass for cover glass, display, sensor, and scanner technologies. Dragontrail supports low profile, reduced weight, portable field, and industrial devices with a toughness of 6x that of soda lime float. It is designed to enhance the usable lifetime of high contact touch displays, and industrial image sensors, document scanners, and on board vehicular and avionics displays.
Highly transmissive, thin, alkali-free, boro-aluminosilicate glass from Asahi Glass Corporation (AGC) is designed for use in highly sensitive bio-photo detection applications, high throughput sensor applications, as enhancement glass for thin displays, and as cover glass for micro arrays.
SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging has the capabilities and knowledge available to assist customers in finding the perfect fiber optic solution for sensor, metrology, and control applications. SCHOTT specialists will work with customers to jointly draw up an action plan addressing each stage leading to series production.
