Optical lenses are one of the Indispensable Products for Technological Development

Aug. 20, 2019

Optical lenses are glass that changes the direction of light propagation and changes the relative spectral distribution of ultraviolet, visible, or infrared light. Optical glass is defined as a glass that has specific requirements for optical properties such as refractive index, dispersion, transmittance, spectral transmittance, and light absorption, and has uniform optical properties. The optical glass is mixed with high-purity silicon, boron, sodium, potassium, zinc, lead, magnesium, calcium, barium, etc. according to a specific formula, melted in high temperature in platinum crucible, uniformly stirred by ultrasonic waves, and then degassed; The time is slowly cooled to avoid internal stress in the glass block. The cooled glass block must be optically measured to verify that the purity, transparency, uniformity, refractive index, and dispersion rate are within specifications. The qualified glass block is heated and forged into an optical lens blank.

High Precision Optical Components

Components made of optical glass are key components in optical instruments. Optical glass can be used to fabricate optical lenses such as lenses, prisms, mirrors, and windows in optical self-shocking equipment. An optical lens is a lens made of optical glass. During the inspection and installation of optical lenses, care must be taken to protect the lenses from damage and contamination. At the same time, after a new lens is installed, it should be cleaned regularly. This process is fairly straightforward and, if done correctly, will extend the life of the lens and reduce costs. On the contrary, it will reduce the service life.

For many industries, optical lenses are an indispensable and important product. If there are no optical lenses, many jobs will be seriously delayed. It is for this reason that the market for optical lenses is now better developed, which gives Optical Windows Supplier the opportunity to gain more market space.
