UV-Grade Lenses for Bacteria Cleaning Applications

Posted by Steve Rowe on

As the world opens back-up, people are starting to return to theaters, museums, sports arenas, and multitudes of indoor attractions. Yet, consumer confidence has been shaken by the threat of potential pathogens that can still spread disease so they are nervous to sit, touch, or even enter these buildings. Owners have established deep-cleaning processes which can be labor intensive, cost prohibitive, and time consuming. As a result, more and more products are emerging that reduce pathogens using ultraviolet (UV) light, specifically UVC light which transmits between 100 - 280 nm.

Deep UV light applications that assist in the mitigation of bacteria require optical filters and lenses that precisely match wavelength requirements in this spectrum.  Esco Optics, a manufacturer of precision optics, can provide any designer of these disinfection systems with the lenses, windows and filters necessary for optimal performance. Using UV-grade fused silica, we can customize the size and shape to fit your requirements. Further, our coating expertise will pinpoint the UV frequency required by your application.
