Optical Components are used to alter the state of light through a variety of means including focusing, filtering, reflecting, or polarizing. Optical Components are integrated into a limitless number of applications, such as microscopy, imaging, or interferometry, for industries ranging from the life sciences to testing and measurement. Optical Components are often designed using specific substrates or anti-reflection coatings to optimize performance in designated ultraviolet, visible, or infrared wavelengths or wavelength ranges.
Edmund Optics features the world’s largest inventory of off-the-shelf Optical Components, including a wide selection of Optical Lenses, Optical Filters, Optical Mirrors, Windows, Prisms, Beamsplitters, or Diffraction Gratings. Optical Lenses are designed for focusing or diverging lighting. Optical Filters are used to selectively pass or block a specific wavelength or wavelength range. Optical Mirrors, Prisms, or Beamsplitters split or alter the path of light. Windows are used to protect sensitive components such as electronic detectors or sensors from outside environments.
