Windows are optical glass with ground and polished faces that are relatively parallel.They are used to isolate two physical environments while allowing light to pass.Windows made of BK7 material have high transmission in the visible spectral region, do not scratch easily, do not degrade under normal operating environment and hence do not need any special precaution or treatment. Anti-Reflective Coating will provide higher transmission.
When selecting windows, you should consider the following: material,transmission,scattering,wave front distortion,parallelism and resistance to certain environment.
China Star Optics offers all types of windows made from different materials.Special size and materials are also available upon request.In addition, we provide a variety of single layer or multiplayer anti-reflecting coating on optical windows.
