    Sapphire Optics

    Sapphire Optical Components are used in a variety of applications requiring high durability or broad spectral ranges, including semiconductor, FTIR spectroscopy, or FLIR imaging. Sapphire, which is the second hardest crystal, features a variety of attributes that are ideal for use in harsh environments, including extreme surface hardness, high thermal conductivity, high dielectric constant, as well as a strong resistance to a variety of chemical acids or alkalis. Compared to many standard optical materials, Sapphire Optical Components offer thinner designs, along with transmission ranges from 0.15 – 5.5μm for optimum performance in the ultraviolet to the MWIR.

    Edmund Optics offers a variety of Sapphire Optical Components for a range of applications, including ball lenses, spherical lenses, or windows. Sapphire Ball Lenses feature high refractive indices, ideal for minimizing the distance between fiber output and lens. Sapphire Half Ball Lenses are available to simplify mounting or system integration. Ruby-doped Sapphire Ball Lenses are also available to ease handling.
