MWIR Lenses

  • Introduction

MWIR lens design

Hyperion Optics hold sophisticated algorithm for optics design optimization process back-up by powerful workstations. The unique optimization allows reduced complexity in the optical element/system spec, which finally will insure the manufacturing feasibility. It also allows higher yields with almost no performance degradation. In addition, Hyperion Optics has extensive experience in mechanical and Opto-Mechanical design which includes tolerance, thermal and stray light analysis.

With the great assistance of our IR components manufacturing capability, we are confident to provide our customer the most affordable design solution without performance compromise. Please refer to our IR components fabrication capability (IR components link here) for further information. We provide 6 weeks typical prototyping lead time for custom MWIR lens design, including assembly and testing, Trioptics MTF chart provided. For complicated asphere/DOE involved system, please contact our optical engineer to discuss your specification for helpful and informative consultation section.

 off-the-shelf Mid-wave (MWIR) lenses

Hyperion Optics off-the-shelf Mid-wave (MWIR) lenses feature cooled technology, which offers very high sensitivity and better transmission. We have our standard design but we also offer customized design to meet our customer needs. These lenses include EFL from 9.05mm to 100mm and function in the wavelengths of 2 - 5μm and 3 - 5μm. The F number is 2. The lenses also cover various detector sizes from 15.36x12.29 to 320x240 pixels. The front lens is coated with Hard Diamond coating and mounted with aluminum mounts.
