Broadband Infrared Ceramics for Harsh Environments

Zinc Sulfide is the most suitable material for broadband  infrared windows, domes and optics. No other material offers this combination of optical properties and environmental resistance. SCHOTT has developed a ceramic process to produce polycrystalline Zinc Sulfide, IRC-1. IRC-1 has significantly improved optical and mechanical performance compared to CVD processed material.
is the material of choice for mid and long wave 
IR applications

can provide IRC-1 products in various custom shapes, sizes, thickness, and surface finishes. Flat
blanks, dome blanks, and curved windows can all be produced to meet each customers specific requirements.
