Infrared Optics: Silicon and Germanium
Infrared (IR) optics require a constant balancing of resistivity and optical transmission. Lattice sales engineers can consult with you on what balance works for your application. The crystals are grown in-house, custom to your application if required.
Silicon and Germanium are materials of choice as optical elements in a variety of infrared applications from night vision to thermal imaging systems. Working with these materials is a specialty, due to their brittleness and the complex interplay of resistivity, transmission, and other optical properties.
Lattice has had 20-years of success in working with just these two materials. 'From crystal growth to finished blanks, Lattice Materials has the most experience in the industry. Our loyal customers and continued growth are a testament to our focus on quality, customer satisfaction and ease of transaction.
Whether your application requires 12 inch diameter windows, 10 inch curved blanks, or polysilicon windows that can dissipate EMI - while maintaining optical transmission
