Spherical & Cylindrical Lenses
Alpine Research Optics offers extensive lens manufacturing capabilities with decades long experience polishing all types of optical glasses, fused silica and crystalline materials including CaF2 and MgF2. We choose the best process technology to ensure such specifications for spatial frequency or low surface roughness on a given substrate are optimized to achieve the maximum optical performance. Truncation, high included angle, steep or long radii – we likely have in place the best practice for timely and efficient production. Augmented by the capabilities of our sister company PFG Precision Optics, we have a vast library of test plates and many Verifire Zygo interferometers, complete with a variety of reference spheres and flats.
We have particular expertise in producing the following laser specific lenses:
- Solid state laser lenses specifically designed to deliver high peak power damage threshold and low scatter, without sacrificing mechanical durability.
- Excimer laser lenses that provide excellent mechanical durability, high pulse count lifetime, and high transmission, even at deep UV wavelengths.
- Ultrafast laser lenses that possess the optimum combination of broad spectral bandwidth, minimum group velocity dispersion (GVD), low scatter, and peak pulse power damage resistance.
Optical Lens Manufacturing
At Alpine Research Optics, we have been creating optical lenses that can be used in a variety of applications and industries for over 30 years. Lenses themselves can be composed of one or many elements and can serve in very different areas. We are proud to create quality optical components for use in imaging, industry, and even defense. As light passes through the lens, it is directly influenced by the profile of the lens. Additionally, material selection is crucial. We are engaged in the creation of a range of optical lenses, which include Plano-Convex Lenses, Double-Convex Lenses, Plano-Concave Lenses, Double-Concave Lenses, Cylinder Lenses, Cylinder Lenses, Spherical Lenses, IR Lenses, and UV Lenses. Alpine Research Optics offers one of the largest inventories of optical lenses in the world, each with high quality and durability.
We create all of our optical lenses by using the latest technology and mechanical engineering to ensure the highest quality end product. We value our technological approach, and thanks to new technologies we are able to produce large volumes of products with the highest quality. Our lenses are used daily in a wide variety of fields, from medicine to security and military needs. It is important to us that our products perform optimally, whether you buy Plano-Convex Lenses or UV lenses. Each of our lenses undergoes strict quality control at the stage of creation so that we can ensure each of our products meet the highest quality standards. When buying our products, you can be sure that our optical lenses will 100% fulfill their intended functions and be of high quality. At the same time, our team of professionals is always ready to advise you on the product you need in your specific situation. We will select the necessary optical lenses for you to precisely accomplish your application and achieve your goals.
