Products

ProductEncDescription
achromatic optics E

Shanghai Optics offers a large variety of custom achromatic lenses for our customers including achromatic spherical and aspherical lenses, achromatic singlets, doublets and triplets. Combined with one of our advanced AR coatings (covering 400–700 nm, 650–1050 nm, 1050–2500 nm), these optimized lenses are ideal for ensuring high resolution image quality and durability. With our in-house state-of the-art metrology and professional testing personnel, Shanghai Optics is able to provide a full range of inspection reports and CoC (Certificate of Conformance) for full optical characterization such as surface quality, dimensions, centricity, coating transmittance/reflectance (with SHIMADU UV3600 spectrophotometer), and overall/partial surface accuracy (with 6-inch ZYGO interferometer). FAI inspection reports are available upon request.

anti-reflection coatings E

Shanghai Optics provides custom anti-reflection coatings with appropriate materials and optimized configuration on a substrate material specified by the customer, with specified transmittance and a specified wavelength region.

aspheric optics E

Precision aspheric lenses reduce visual defects and produce clearer images, making them ideal for many applications. In addition, because the surface of an aspheric lens is designed and formed to effectively reduce aberration in specific applications, custom aspheric lenses make flexible solutions to complex problems. At Shanghai Optics, we use two main methods to produce custom aspheric lenses: molding and traditional polishing with the state-of-the-art manufacturing and metrology equipment.

ball lenses E

Shanghai Optics offers custom-made ball lenses. Please contact us for manufacturing limit or custom specifications. We can offer balls lenses e.g. with a diameter tolerance of ±50 μm, scratch & dig 20/10, surface quality 40-20, and with <50 μm deviation from a sphere.

beam splitters E

Shanghai Optics manufactures custom cubic beamsplitters, plate beamsplitters, and lateral displacement beamsplitters. All our beamsplitters are made of high quality glass, with high surface quality to allow tight tolerance on all parameters.

cold mirrors E

Shanghai Optics is a custom optics manufacturer with over 55 years of optics manufacturing experience. Our cold mirrors are perfect for applications that require high reflectance in the visible spectrum and excellent transmission in the infrared. These cold mirrors are manufactured using a special proprietary all dielectric coating technique that yields the most durable commercially available product. Our cold mirrors will pass Mil. C-675, snap tape tests and are capable of operation at temperatures as high as 600°C. They will also operate and survive in extreme humidity environments. Cold mirrors are available from stock in one inch and two inch diameter round or one inch, two inch and four inch square configurations. Larger sheets are also available and may be cut into custom sizes.

corner cube prisms E

Shanghai Optics Inc. custom corner cube prisms are used for applications in spectroscopy, satellites, or battlefield technology, also in land surveying, laser resonator cavities, electronic distance measurement, and space vessel docking.

custom optics E

Shanghai Optics relies on over 55 years of design and manufacturing experience and advanced metrology to provide our customer with world-class lens design and manufacturing services. Our engineering team can provide various types of lens design and assembly, covering all aspects of imaging and illumination design, from LED to gas discharge lamp illumination system design, as well as the design of the overall opto-instrument components and customized optical modules.

cylindrical lenses E

Shanghai Optics offers cylindrical lenses e.g. with a dimension tolerance of ±30 μm or even ±10 μm, λ/4 or λ/8 surface irregularity and a centration better than 3 arcmin or even 1 arcmin.

dichroic mirrors E

Shanghai Optics manufactures a wide range of optical filters or mirrors for engineering, scientific, and photographic applications. Our hard coated optical filters are dichroic filters/mirros. They are composed of a single substrate with a dense hard coating. These hard sputtered filters are expensive to produce, but they have excellent performance and are ideal for applications where precision is of paramount importance. We use cutting-edge IBS technology to give our dichroic filters uniform dielectric coatings, and no adhesives whatever are involved in manufacture. This ensures a quality product with a very long filter life. Since they have only one substrate covered with a thin film, Shanghai Optics customized dichroic filters are much thinner than traditional coated filters and offer much higher transmission.

dielectric coatings E

Shanghai Optics can provide all types of anti-reflective, high reflective, and partial reflective coatings. We produce a wide variety of coatings from a single layer of anti-reflective coating to complex multi-layer dielectric stacks. Types of dielectric coatings are BBAR, V-coatings, dual wavelength coatings, and sharp cut-on and cut-off filters.

dielectric mirrors E

Shanghai Optics is a custom optics manufacturer with over 55 years of optics manufacturing experience. We produce high precision broadband dielectric mirrors according to customer’s specifications. These mirrors have the same exceptional specifications as our laser mirrors except that they use special multi layer coatings to achieve a very high degree of reflectance for both s- and p-polarizations over a broad wavelength range. For white light or tunable laser use these mirrors provide the ultimate in high reflectance and insignificant polarization effect. The reflectance of these coatings is consistently greater than 99.5% average. However, this figure includes very small dips in the p-reflectance which can never be completely eliminated. The s-polarization component has a reflectance greater than 99.9% over the entire range.

Fresnel lenses E

Shanghai Optics can produce a large number of high-performance lighting lenses, including lighting aspheric lenses, Fresnel lenses, spherical lenses, flat pieces, prisms and other products. Main applications are automobile lights, airport runway lights, projection lighting, LED lighting, etc.

hot mirrors E

Hot and cold mirrors are both specialized dielectric mirrors which are used for heat control; to filter unwanted energy from a light source. A cold mirror will reflect 90% of the visible light spectrum while efficiently transmitting (and thus removing from the site of interest) infrared wavelengths. A hot mirror will reflect 90% of infrared and near infrared light, and transmit a large portion of visible light (up to 80%). Shanghai Optics can manufacture custom hot and cold mirrors mirrors for any angle of incidence desired, from 0 to 45°.
