Using Polymer Optics in Harsh Environments

January 6, 2020

By Dan Fiore, Director of Business Development Polymer optics are being used in a much wider array of applications as the manufacturing processes becomes more refined and the variety of polymers available for unique applications increases. Polymer optics in their virgin form (as molded, machined or diamond-turned) are still very soft and fragile. To overcome this obstacle, polymer material suppliers have been working with enhancements at the resin level, but such improvements have not yielded the results needed to sustain polymer optics in the most severe environments. Multiple deposition techniques can be used to help make polymer optics more robust….
