Paper Abstract

A low-cost polymer infrared imaging lens well suited to military and security applications in the 8 to 14 μm region has been made. It has a focal length of 50 mm, and an f/number of 0.8. The design requires four aspheric or Fresnel surfaces. Improvements in molding have allowed significant improvements over a 25 mm focal length design previously discussed.
