Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Navy to develop a wide field of view MWIR/SWIR gradient index (GRIN) compound lens with exceptional performance and reduced size and lens integration cost.
GRIN lenses are compact and high performance, but often known to possess increased integration risk. Novel optical design and material development provides a set of aberration correction capabilities in the GRIN lenses. PSI will identify particular benefits of integration of GRIN lenses to replace elements of homogeneous lenses, and present a wide field of view, large aperture lens with superior performance and reduced integration costs.
