High-Precision Optical Windows
Our proprietary manufacturing technology and processes enable ZYGO to manufacture high precision optical windows greater than a meter in diameter. ZYGO has made significant investments in optimizing fabrication processes for sapphire and water clear zinc sulfide ideally suited for military surveillance and reconnaissance applications.
Focusing on stringently-controlled fabrication processes that minimize surface and sub-surface damage, ZYGO provides high flexural strength, high reliability windows. ZYGO can also control wedge, and its orientation on sapphire and ZnS windows, and is recognized for volume production and delivery of meter class high laser fluence optics for nearly every major laser fusion research facility in the world, including the National Ignition Facility in Livermore, California.
• Proprietary fabrication processes to maximize strength and reliability.
• Transmitted Wavefront Errors better than λ/20.
• Wedge tolerances < 10 arc seconds.
• Material sizes exceeding 36" diameter.
• Perimeter shaping of complex geometries.
• Special processes to stress relieve for mounting.
