Zinc Selenide (ZnSe) Wedged Windows feature a 30 arcmin or 3° wedge to eliminate fringe patterns from etalon effects as well as prevent cavity feedback. Zinc selenide has wide usage in high power CO2 laser systems due to its low absorption and high resistance to thermal shock. Zinc Selenide (ZnSe) Wedge Windows feature a broad wavelength range with excellent transmission in the IR, making them ideal for a wide variety of IR applications including thermal imaging, FLIR, and medical diagnostic systems.
Note: Special care should be taken when handling zinc selenide as it is a toxic material. Always wear rubber or plastic gloves to avoid risk of contamination.
