Curved IR Optics Center of Excellence

Diamond Turned Optics

Spectral’s Curved Optics Center of Excellence (COCE) has extensive experience in Single Point Diamond Turned Optics.  Spectral manufactures all crystalline materials as well as metal mirrors.  The team’s experience and equipment allow us to manufacture products to very accurate and precise tolerances backed by quality measurements.  Aspheric crystalline optics and aspheric aluminum mirrors, including diffractive surfaces, are our team’s specialties.  Spectral’s metrology suite is able to measure these standard surfaces with the utmost of accuracy, precision and quality for your application.  Spectral’s Jaffrey NH site has a complete set of metrology tools including Zygo Interferometers, Zygo Zegage surface roughness measurement and Taylor Hobson PGI Dimension profilometer.  Spectral processes all standard crystalline materials such as Ge, Si, Chalcogenide, BaF2, CaF2, ZnSe, ZnS, Aluminum, HDPE.  Our process engineers use statistical process control to monitor well documented and defined processes for repeatable and reproducible product.  The Team is ready for your DT needs!

Optical Polishing

Spectral has extensive experience in crystalline optics.  In the COCE in Jaffrey we have a multitude of conventional spindles combined with CNC grinding and can fabricate virtually any curved optic.  The Team consists of opticians with vast experience and our apprentice program addresses the industry’s needs to develop opticians for the future of the profession.  The team has grown from simple lenses in the early 80s to producing very demanding optics for the nation’s defense.  The Team is very adept at taking difficult optics and producing them in a production environment.  The Team is ready for your next optical manufacturing challenge.

 

Our team has been fabricating optics for the FTIR instrumentation industry since 1981.  The company started by polishing beam splitters, sampling optics and internal component optics for FTIR instrumentation.  Over time we have grown to a valued supplier for large FTIR instrument manufacturers.  We are also a supplier for military and space optics.  Recently we are a supplier for the third Gen FLIR for the US Army.  Our team of highly skilled opticians are committed to accurate and precise optical manufacturing and coating.
