Optical Surfaces is supplying ultra high precision matched beamsplitter/compensator optics for a leading spectrophotometer manufacturer.
To achieve the standards required for the interferometer that lies at the heart of the High Resolution FT-IR system, the company is manufacturing 100mm diameter OA grade fused silica beamsplitter and compensator optics with a surface accuracy of lambda / 20 (p-v) and wavefront error in transmission of lambda / 20 (p-v) at 633nm.
Each beamsplitter/compensator pair is tightly matched in thickness and wedge angle.
Dr. Aris Kouris, sales and marketing manager at Optical Surfaces said: “High resolution spectroscopy places great demands on being able to achieve leading edge specifications with the interferometer optics.
“Being selected to produce the optics at the heart of the FT-IR system was based upon our proven pedigree in reliably producing ultra high precision optics for a growing number of spectrometer and interferometer manufacturers.”
