The Application Market of Germanium Optics Wafer

The application market of Infrared optical germanium wafer is wide. In military field, the number of globe armed forces is up to over twenty million, some countries use infrared products very widely. Many countries also plan to increase estimated expenditure for Infrared optical germanium wafer, various public security ( border, airport, harbor and boundary) also increase the demand of infrared application. In civilian field, it meets the functional needs of automotive, fire protection, medicine and astronomy field, it is also be needed by process control and monitoring of manufacturing industry and construction industry.

Germanium single crystal is now the most popular and widely used infrared optical material in the world, its finished products are infrared germanium lens and germanium lens. The number of germanium lens is different according to their different use. Infrared germanium lens has high requirement on precision and technology, it always has more than six to ten germanium lens while germanium lens for civil use has lower requirement with two or three germanium lens. Germanium window always used for military equipment.
