Radiation Hard Lens for Color Sensors

The new Model 346 non-browning lens from Resolve Optics Ltd. (Chesham, UK) has been designed to operate with color sensors in areas subject to radiation. For any camera lens to survive even quite low levels of radiation, without degradation, they should be produced from non-browning ceriumdoped glass. Unfortunately most non-browning glasses are yellow tinted, which gives color images acquired by CMOS cameras a yellow appearance.
