Paper Abstract

Umicore, known for its activities in the infrared materials and molded optics, this year launches a new infrared glass called GASIR® 3. This material can be molded using Umicore's proprietary molding technology and allows serving a wide range of new markets. Examples are a new automotive commercial application and sensing applications with their need for very small optics. Parallel to the materials development, a new coating has been developed by Umicore that allows the use of GASIR® molded optics in extremely harsh environments. The extreme performance of this new type of coating which complies with the toughest military specs will also be described.
