As a leading provider of high precision optical assemblies, objectives,
optics, thin film coatings and optical materials, LightWorks Optical Systems
has drawn from 52 years of expertise in the development of specialized optical
assemblies for the Defense industry, to deliver the company’s first
commercially available lenses. The LWIR FFO lenses offer superior optical MTF
performance for high resolution FPA formats over a wider operating spectral
range (8µm to 14µm).

“With this unique market opportunity, we are able to leverage our design
expertise in specialized optics for the military, to bring the Owl-IR lenses
to commercial customers,” stated LightWorks Optical SystemsGeneral Manager,
Andrew Riser.“While these products deliver a distinct advantage over other
commercially available IR lenses, ourdesign capabilities can also assist
customers in the development of custom lenses for various focal plane arrays.”

The Owl-IR LWIR F1.0 FFO lenses are camera compatible and designed with low
F-number and excellent color correction. This technology allows more light to
reach the image sensor. The lenses also include special internal features that
significantly reduce stray light. In addition, the rugged hard carbon coating
on the exterior lens surface provides excellent durability. Owl-IR products
can be purchased in standard focal lengths of 18mm, 25mm, 50mm, 75mm, and
100mm.
