TECHSPEC® Calcium Fluoride Plano-Convex (PCX) Lenses
Calcium Fluoride features low solubility and superior hardness
Barrington, N.J. - Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces TECHSPEC® Calcium Fluoride Plano-Convex (PCX) Lenses. These versatile lenses are excellent for use in demanding applications that require superior performance from the ultraviolet (UV) through the mid-wave infrared (MWIR) spectra.
Low Index of Refraction
Featuring a low Index of Refraction, high laser damage threshold and low axial and radial-stress birefringence makes the TECHSPEC Calcium Fluoride Plano-Convex (PCX) Lenses an outstanding choice for use with Excimer lasers or for integration into IR systems. The lenses, manufactured using a vacuum grade UV substrate, offer greater than 90% transmission from 193 nm to 7 ìm. Calcium Fluoride is characterized by its low solubility and offers superior hardness in comparison to other fluoride-based substrates. This makes TECHSPEC Calcium Fluoride Plano-Convex (PCX) Lenses able to withstand harsh environments and exposure to the elements.
Multiple Size and Focal Length Options
TECHSPEC Calcium Fluoride Plano-Convex (PCX) Lenses are available in 12.5 mm, 25 mm and 50 mm diameters. These uncoated lenses feature a positive focal length, ranging from 18 mm to 150 mm, and have one flat and one convex surface. TECHSPEC Calcium Fluoride Plano-Convex (PCX) Lenses are RoHS compliant and are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
