PRESS RELEASE

Edmund Optics (EO; Barrington, NJ, USA), the premier provider of opticalcomponents, introduces its new TECHSPEC Mid Wave IR Achromatic Lenses. These high performance lenses are ideal components for use by designers and researchers working in the 3-5 µm spectral region.

Near Diffraction-Limited Performance
TECHSPEC Mid Wave IR Achromatic Lenses are designed to provide near diffraction-limited performance over their entire spectral range of 3-5 µm. These lenses are ideal for applications in FTIR, Spectroscopy, MWIR Thermal Imaging and for use with tunable QCL Lasers.

Significantly improved performance over comparable singlets
The company's TECHSPEC Mid Wave IR Achromatic Lenses provide significantly improved performance over comparable singlets. "The new TECHSPEC Mid Wave IR Achromatic Lenses will provide a much smaller focused spot with more energy for higher resolution images or greater signal detection," said Gregory Fales, Senior Product Line Manager, Edmund Optics. This feature allows designers in industrial, medical, scientific and defense applications to use the full dynamic range and quantum efficiency in their mid-wave sensors.

Precision Germanium and Silicon lenses
Edmund Optics' versatile new doublets feature precision Germanium and Silicon lenses, which are expertly air-spaced and aligned within a sturdy anodized aluminum barrel. The lenses are color-corrected and coated for maximum energy throughput over their full spectral range of 3-5 µm. Full prescription information is available upon request. TECHSPEC Mid Wave IR Achromatic Lenses are available in four 30 mm diameter versions with 40 mm, 50 mm, 60 mm and 75 mm focal lengths. EO's TECHSPEC Mid Wave IR Achromatic Lenses are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
