IR Lenses Overview

Shanghai Optics offers a large variety of custom Infrared IR Lenses and components for  focusing , collimating and collecting light in near-infrared (NIR),  short wave infrared (SWIR), middle wave infrared (MWIR) and long wave infrared (LWIR) spectra. By upholding the highest manufacturing and ISO standards, we produce high performance IR lenses meet customers need for industrial, medical, life science, defense applications.

Shanghai Optics has more than 55 years of experience in designing and manufacturing high-quality IR lenses including IR imaging lenses, fixed focal length lenses, zoom lenses, beam expander, spherical lenses, aspheric lenses and objective lenses. We provide customers most valued solutions in high performance IR lenses across a large portion of infrared spectrum. Our IR lenses have been widely used in surveillance cameras, IR magnification systems, IR zoom systems, IR thermal display, thermal imaging system, temperature detector, etc.

We design high-performance IR lenses for high manufacturing yield. With advanced in-house manufacturing and testing equipment, we produce IR lenses in economic and very efficient manners. We strictly control each optical component quality in production to ensure a system level success. To achieve and maintain our high-quality standards, we use the ISO 9001 certified process and high-reliable measurement systems for component quality inspection at every manufacturing process step.

We perform full inspection in-house on component and assembly characteristics according to customers’ specifications including MTF, field of view, transmission, reflectivity, effective focal length (EFL), distortion, filed curvature, astigmatism, etc.  We ensure the performance of each IR lens meet customers’ need. Our in-house ImageMaster® Universal – MTF Testing in the Spectral Range UV-VIS-NIR-SWIR-MWIR-LWIR are used to measure the Modulation Transfer Function ( MTF) and optical parameters over a wide spectra range including UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR  spectra

We utilize our expertise to serve our customers in designing and manufacturing high-performance IR lenses and components from simple fixed-focus objective lenses to complex opto-electro-mechanical modules. We offer custom IR lens solutions for meeting customs’ specific needs such as custom dual-band lens for Visible and SWIR spectra. Our engineers are experts in material selections for color correction in two spectral bands simultaneously and also Design for Manufacturing.  We produce custom dual-band lenses with transmission above 80% and also high image quality in visible range and also SWIR range (700 – 1900nm).

With our IR expertise and flexibility, customers with IR lens application needs are able to achieve their innovational concept and special requirement via Shanghai Optics IR design service, from simple fixed-focus objective lens and complex opto-electro-mechanical modules.
