Germanium (Ge) Optical Windows Precision Germanium optical windows - customer made to your specification
ApplicationsZYGO has a long tradition of manufacturing custom-made optical windows, in a wide variety of materials, for many different applications applications, including, but not limited to:
• Amplifier Slabs, discs and rods
• Debris Shields
• Reference surfaces
• Intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance
WavelengthsZYGO has developed a wide range of manufacturing processes to accommodate optical windows operating in the infrared (IR), visible, and ultra-violet (UV) parts of the spectrum. Similarly, ZYGO has experience with multi-spectral applications, combining IR and visible. Optical windows can be provided with or without thin film coatings.
SizesZYGO can process these types of windows for components ranging in size from a few millimeters to greater than 1 meter.
MaterialsIn addition to Germanium windows, ZYGO has the capability to process a wide range of materials to fabricate optical windows. Other materials for optical window products include, but are not limited to:
• Cleartran windows (water-clear Zinc Sulfide - ZnS)
• Sapphire windows (various crystal orientations)
• Zinc selenide windows (ZnSe)
