Chalcogenide Lenses

Chalcogenide lenses use ultra-precision multi-axis free-form surface processing machine tools and are processed through ultra-high-precision fine grinding, grinding, measurement, ultra-high-precision polishing and other processes. Under precise control of the machine tool and processing environment, optical aspheric plasticity is achieved. Domain ultra-high precision processing, using ultra-high precision correction polishing technology to polish the lens surface, achieving an infrared aspheric chalcogenide lens with an optical aspheric surface shape accuracy ≤ 0.1 micron and a surface roughness Ra ≤ 0.01 micron.

Features of Chalcogenide Lenses

Features of Chalcogenide Lenses
  • One-stop customized production: Solar Valley processes various plano-convex, biconvex, and convex-concave structure aspheric chalcogenide lenses according to customer requirements. The shape of the chalcogenide lens can be circular, D-shaped, square, etc.

  • Material: The chalcogenide lens material is a special kind of glass whose composition contains a large amount of sulfur element. The main feature of chalcogenide glass is its high refractive index, generally above 1.8. Chalcogenide lens materials include IRG201, IRG202, IRG203, IRG204, IRG205, IRG206, IRG207 and other models.

  • Lens properties: Chalcogenide lens material is a non-oxide glass material formed by introducing chalcogen elements as the main component and introducing one or more of Ge, As, Sb, Ga and other elements. It can be used as an infrared thermal imaging The lens material of the system is the "dazzling eye" of infrared temperature measurement equipment. Widely used in thermal imaging system optics for infrared windows and thermal bands (8 to 14µm), their relatively high transmittance through 3-5µm and 8-10µm makes chalcogenide lenses ideal for multispectral applications in a wide range of Used in making infrared optical components such as infrared windows, fairings and lenses.
