Germanium Lenses

Germanium lenses are crafted with exceptional precision using a single-point diamond ultra-precision multi-axis free-form surface machining tool. This sophisticated process includes ultra-high-precision single-point turning, meticulous grinding, accurate measuring, and advanced polishing techniques. Every step is conducted under stringent control over both the machinery and the environment to ensure the highest level of precision in the optical aspheric domain. The use of cutting-edge correction polishing technology further enhances the lens surface, culminating in infrared aspheric lenses that boast an optical aspheric surface shape accuracy of ≤ 0.1 micron and a surface roughness of Ra ≤ 0.01 micron. These lenses represent the pinnacle of optical engineering, designed to deliver unparalleled performance in demanding applications.
