Diffraction Gratings are optical components used to separate light into its component wavelengths.
Optical Lenses are optical components designed to focus or diverge light.
Optical Windows are flat, plane-parallel plates that are often used as protective barriers for electronic sensors or ...
Infrared optics have applications in a many fields, from high power CO2 lasers, which work at 10.6 μm, to night-vision thermal imaging (MWIR and LWIR bands) and IR imaging. They are also important in spectroscopy, as the transitions used in identifying many trace gases are in the mid infrared region.
