We have developed several rugged materials for multiband applications covering the UV, visible, Shortwave-IR (SWIR), Midwave-IR (MWIR) and Longwave-IR (LWIR) wavelength regions. These materials include MILTRAN™ and IR glass which transmit in the SWIR, MWIR and LWIR. MILTRAN™ is > 3 times harder and stronger than ZnS and can provide rugged window or dome materials for broadband sensors. IR glass can be easily made in complex shapes. A combination of MILTRAN™ and IR glass can be used to make achromats for multispectral imaging systems.
