While Resolve Optics is widely known for delivering fixed focus and zoom radiation resistant lenses for applications in nuclear power generation and nuclear reprocessing, their expertise is increasingly helping organizations monitor and measure in an increasing number of varied environments subject to radiation.

In the domain of medical research, Resolve Optics radiation resistant lenses form targeting elements in synchrotron radiation therapy technologies as well as in commercial X-Ray instrumentation.

In the domain of outer space, all instrumentation, cameras and sensors are subject to continuous exposure to radiation that will rapidly degrade and make defective standard optical parts. Space-borne applications pose a challenging setting, conditional on radiation, where camera lens maintenance or replacement is extremely undesirable.

In recent times, a growing number of satellite suppliers and space agencies have  chosen Resolve Optics to supply them with an assortment of high-performance, radiation-tolerant zoom lenses owing to the company’s expertise in this domain and readiness to work with them on adapting Resolve Optics’ standard non-browning zoom lens designs adapted to be “space ready.”
