SINOPTIX offers specific optical components solutions for Ultraviolet wavelenght applications. Please browse below for some examples of our realizations.
UV wavelengths are defined as between visible and X-ray ranges. The Ultraviolet spectral range spreads from 10nm to 380nm, and is usually divided between near UV (200 to 380nm) and far UV (10 to 200nm).
UV beams are used for many applications including Biomedical, Microscopy (Fluorescence), Spectroscopy and security industries. However, ultraviolet is highly absorbed by most of the materials, letting few choices for the components substrates to be used in UV optical systems. Please find below detail of the available materials offered by SINOPTIX
On the below table you’ll find optical material references and characteristics for manufacturing of UV optics. They can be used to manufacture most optical components: UV lenses, UV prisms, UV windows.
|Material||Spectral Range||Aspect & remarks||Price reference|
|Fused Silica UV grade (JGS1)||170nm – 2,1µm||No color, fully transparent in the visible||$|
|Calcium Fluoride (CaF2)||180nm – 8µm||No color to light grey||$$|
|Sapphire||250nm-5µm||Clear transparent, ultra resistant||$$|
|Magnesium Fluoride (MgF2)||200nm-6µm||Glass color, more robust than CaF2||$$$|
