Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, is proud to announce several additions to their product lineup, including Hexa-Black™ C-Mount Noise Reduction Extension Tubes, TECHSPEC® CA Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses, and Low GDD Ultrafast Mirrors.
Edmund Optics® has expanded its partnership with Acktar Ltd. to provide Hexa-Black™ C-Mount Noise Reduction Extension Tubes. Conventional C-Mount extension tubes feature anodized aluminum interiors, which can cause image hotspots if not internally lined with light absorbing material. The Hexa-Black™ C-Mount Noise Reduction Extension Tubes internally feature Hexa-Black™ light absorbing technology with a stray light rejection ratio up to 8 × 10-7. These new extension tubes absorb and reduce noise from stray light, commonly found in imaging systems with diffuse illumination, at grazing angles up to 88° and function over a wide absorption band from the UV to MWIR.
The TECHSPEC® CA Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses are designed for new high resolution large format sensors. Designed for the 27.9mm diagonal image circle of APS-C Large Format Sensors, these lenses feature a TFL Mount with M35 x 0.75 threads and the same flange distance (17.5mm), robustness, and ease-of-use as a C-Mount. Accomodating for a larger sensor allows for capturing much higher resolution images with a compact lens, making these lenses ideal for machine vision and factory automation applications.
New TECHSPEC® Low GDD Ultrafast Mirrors are designed with a highly reflective, dispersion compensating ion-beam sputtered (IBS) coating for low scatter and absorption. They are designed for a 45° angle of incidence, making them ideal for ultrafast beam steering. TECHSPEC® Low GDD Ultrafast Mirrors have a GDD of near zero at their design wavelength range, reducing dispersion of the reflected beam. These mirrors are typically used to transport femtosecond laser pulses.
