Silicone Optics

Use FTI's silicone optics for extreme environments in which carbon-based polymers would distort or melt. Silicone will eventually char or burn, but its resistance to temperature, UV, humidity, as well as its biocompatibility make it a useful material for such applications as lighting in the UV, VIS and NIR, and biomedical applications. Silicones are somewhat UV transmitting, with nearly 100% transmittance ranging from ~350 nm to ~1600 nm.

The materials' low index of refraction (n) poses challenges for design of the lenses. Let Fresnel Technologies' expert optical designers guide you in optimizing your silicone optics.
