Large-Format MWIR Lens

StingRay Optics, Keene, NH, offers a 50-mm midwave infrared (MWIR) large-format lens assembly with an optional microscanning and step-stare sensor capability. The lens can be a standalone solution for large-format detectors or used in conjunction with enhanced-resolution features. The lens is used with cooled cameras with focal planes up to 28 mm diagonal. The speed of the lens is based on an F/2.3 cold shield arrangement, and the 50-mm focal length is derived from the required 1-meter sampling area at an operating distance of 2.5 km. The lens provides diffraction-limited performance over the entire field of view.
