Custom Designed High Performance Ultraviolet Lenses for Demanding Applications

Drawing upon decades of experience - Resolve Optics Ltd. is able to offer a service for custom design and supply of small batches of high performance Ultraviolet (UV) lenses to fulfill the most demanding applications.

Resolve Optics Ltd has a proven track record of developing state-of-the-art optical solutions that meet the highest standards and solve the most challenging problems for its customers. In the area of UV lenses - the company's world class optical designers and engineers are experienced with optical design projects in areas including forensic analysis (fingerprinting), high-speed imaging (combustion analysis), defense (ballistics), microlithography and nuclear inspection.

UV lenses can often be very expensive and it can be difficult to find a lens that matches your specific requirements. Often customers have come to Resolve Optics as 'off-the-shelf' UV lenses do not match their UV intensifier / sensor resulting in a significant loss in throughput, resolution or even spectral range covered.

Resolve Optics designs optical elements out of synthetically fused silica or UV grade calcium fluoride, to provide the best possible transmission in the UV range (10-400nm). Using proprietary UV antireflection multi-layer coatings Resolve Optics is able to achieve wide spectral coverage (230 to 500nm) and offer greater than 99% transmission per surface.

Operating from its ISO9001-2008 approved facility in Chesham, UK - Resolve Optics Ltd. has for over 20 years developed OEM quantity specialist lens systems and optical designs for small and large high technology businesses. The company has the proven and rare capability to produce small quantities of high performance, mounted lens systems with the look, feel and quality equivalent to the best professional photographic and broadcast TV lenses.
