Bespoke fixed focus and zoom lenses as well as beamsplitters that operate in the infrared (IR) region (1-14 microns) were designed and supplied by Resolve Optics. To realise the full potential of recent development in IR camera, sensor and instrument technology, the need for very high performance, high-resolution or large format IR lenses and lens systems that meet the exact needs of that device is critical.
Driven by the lure of cost savings some engineers and designers initially decided to include 'off-the-shelf' infrared lenses and lens systems in the design of their products. However, adopting an 'off-the-shelf' strategy necessitates accepting risks including loss of competitive edge through compromised performance and having little control over security of supply compared to an optimized bespoke OEM design.
Over the last 25 years Resolve Optics Ltd. has successfully developed many innovative, high performance OEM lenses for customers seeking to source IR components for their thermal camera, sensor or instrument system. Drawing upon an experienced team of optical designers, Resolve Optics Ltd. can quickly gain an understanding of the basic physics of the technology associated with each customer's product enabling a novel, optimised and affordable solution to be proposed.
