LightPath Technologies introduces athermalized f/1.3 infrared lens

ORLANDO, Fla., 18 Jan. 2007. LightPath Technologies in Orlando, Fla., is introducing an f/1.3, 14.9 millimeter focal length infrared (IR) lens assembly for uncooled infrared sensors. These lenses are designed as the primary optics for thermal imagers for applications in homeland security, firefighting, predictive maintenance and driver's vision enhancement.

ORLANDO, Fla., 18 Jan. 2007. LightPath Technologies in Orlando, Fla., is introducing an f/1.3, 14.9 millimeter focal length infrared (IR) lens assembly for uncooled infrared sensors. These lenses are designed as the primary optics for thermal imagers for applications in homeland security, firefighting, predictive maintenance, and driver's vision enhancement.

These lens assemblies integrate LightPath's Black Diamond molded lenses that are a lower cost substitute for high-volume diamond-turned optics. The passive athermalized design provides temperature stability without adding additional cost.

"LightPath is excited to bring molded lens technologies to the infrared. Molded lens technologies will enable the low cost mass production of IR lenses and help drive the growing thermal imaging markets," says Ken Brizel, president and chief executive officer of LightPath.
