Knight Optical's Sapphire Ball Lenses for Fibre Optics

Knight Optical (USA) LLC

Sapphire is one of the hardest minerals & optical materials available for use in the range from UV up to 5┬Ám. Making it ideal as a protective window for camera systems. The key feature of ball lenses is their short back focal length allowing for precision coupling where size or space is a limiting factor in the system. Ball lenses are typically used in pairs with one lens acting as a collimator for the second to focus the light back into the coupled fibre. Where a more compact solution is required a half-ball lens is typically more suitable.
