Angstrom Precision Optics delivers optics that others can’t because of our capabilities to fabricate hard-to-find, hard-to-manufacture materials.
We work with every high-demand, common optical material, as well as many emerging and rare materials. In fact, our unprecedented stock and access to rare materials allow us to deliver optics unavailable anywhere else in the world.
APO works with glass from all major suppliers, including Schott, Corning, Heraeus, Hoya, ULC, Glass Fab, Dynasil and others. We’ll even stock your materials to cut down your carry costs and lead times.
APO is a leader in the optical fabrication of:
- Germanium: APO's process yields very high precision, low cost, high volume IR optics. Our process was proven in delivery of over 80,000 germanium windows used in Defense. We typically can produce germanium optics up to 8" in diameter.
- ULE glass: Ultra low expansion glass for visible applications.
- Exotic and colored filter glass: Particularly useful for biomedical applications, filter glasses can be combined with specialized coatings to achieve very specific reflection or transmission values to meet customer requirements.
In fact, we’ve collected an inventory of specialty, rare and discontinued glass, including:
