Product Family Description

  • Circular and Square Sizes from 5mm to 150mm
  • 7 Broadband Anti-Reflection Coating Options Available
  • World's Largest selection of Standard N-Bk7 Windows
  • Also Available with Ultra-Thin N-BK7 Windows

TECHSPEC® λ/4 N-BK7 Precision Windows are ideally suited for industrial and low-power laser applications. The high tolerance design yields minimal beam distortion and scatter. Broadband coating options extend the range of these precision windows through the visible and near-infrared spectra. TECHSPEC® λ/4 N-BK7 Precision Windows are offered in circular and square sizes ranging from 5mm to 150mm.  

Note: New additions to this product family may be specified with a transmitted wavefront distortion (TWD) specification instead of a surface flatness. For more information on the difference between these two specifications, see our application note on Understanding Optical Windows
