Resolve Optics designs specialist lenses and manufactures smaller production quantities of radiation-resistant (non-browning) lenses and optical products.
All optical elements within Resolve Optics radiation resistant lens designs are made using cerium oxide doped glass or synthetic silica enabling them to withstand radiation doses of up to 100,000,000 rads and temperatures up to 55°C without discoloration or degradation of performance. All radiation resistant lenses provide high image resolution and minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 750nm.
In medical research - Resolve Optics radiation resistant lenses form targeting elements in synchrotron radiation therapy machines and also in commercial x-ray instrumentation.
Radiation resistant zoom lenses
Recently NASA selected Resolve Optics to supply them with a selection of high performance, radiation resistant zoom lenses because of their expertise in this area and willingness to work on adapting standard 3x and 6x non- browning zoom lens designs to be ‘space ready’.
