Zinc sulfide Summary
ZINC SULFIDE produced in a chemical vapor deposition process (CVD) is a cost-effective alternative for IR , lenses, domes and IR optical components. VITRON's CVD ZINC SULFIDE is not hygroscopic and resistant to highly reactive atmospheric gases.
This ultrapure and dense material has a high fracture strength and is easy to machine with both classic and single-point diamond machining technologies. Coatings reduce the relfection of the material signifivant.
CVD ZINC SULFIDE is particularly suited for the 8 - 12 µm spectral range.
Is obtained byaftertreatment of the CVD zinc sulfide via hot isostatic pressing (HIP). This leads to a rearrangement of the crystal structure and cleans the material, which considerably improves the transmittance in the visible spectral range is transparent in the wavelength range of 0.4 to 12 µm. can be used for broadband applications. can also be processed into IR optical elements using both classic and single-point diamond machining technologies.
