PPD manufactures custom, high precision optical components including spherical lenses, lens assemblies and spherical mirror substrates for imaging, machine vision and high energy laser applications from the ultra-violet (UV) through the mid-infrared (MIR). Coated and uncoated optics are available from 2mm to > 8” in diameter and in a wide range of materials including fused silica, infrasil, N-BK7, YAG, SF11 and other high index glasses. If your radius of curvature is not yet determined, contact us for information on existing fabrication tooling and test plates
, or send us your design specifications for a fully custom lens or mirror quotation.
Low-loss ion-beam-sputtered anti-reflection (AR) coatings with reflectivity less than 0.1% per surface and low-absorption high reflector mirror coatings
are available on PPD lenses or can be applied to customer supplied substrates. PPD uses only IBS thin film deposition technology because it is a repeatable process which results in coatings that are durable, stable and easy to clean.
