Specialty Windows are Optical Windows designed for a variety of applications. Specialty Optical Windows are unique in shape or purpose. Optical Mirrors are designed to protect electronic sensors or other sensitive optical components from damage or overexposure to light. Edmund Optics offers a range of Specialty Optical Windows, including Light Control Film, Glass or Acrylic Domes, Heat Absorbing Glass, or other Infrared (IR) Materials.
Light Control Film is ideal for applications requiring the elimination of unwanted ambient light, or for controlling the direction of display light. Heat Absorbing Glass absorbs wavelengths beyond the visible spectrum, minimizing the amount of unwanted heat transmitting through the system. Infrared (IR) Material Windows are used in Medium Wave Infrared (MWIR) or Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) applications. Acrylic or Glass Domes can be used as encompassing protective boundaries between two environments. Glass Domes offer superior optical characteristics, while Acrylic Domes feature superior durability. Additionally, Acrylic Domes are easily mounted to surfaces using slips or screws.
