High Refractive Index (RI) Resins for Bright Diffractive Optical Elements (DOE)

High brightness diffractive optical elements (DOE) employ high refractive index (RI) materials.  A cost-effective approach to these DOEs is to use a high RI resin that can be processed rapidly by photo nano-imprint lithography (P-NIL) methods.  ACW has been a leader in developing resins for P-NIL since the methodology was referred to as 2P (for Read More…

Let’s Be Clear: UV-Curable Resins for Lenses

Clear, Colorless, Hard, High RI Plastic Lenses ACW’s L series are one-component, medium viscosity acrylate resins that cure with UV light to give hard, high RI (n = 1.51-1.60) materials suitable for lenses.  These resins have good depth of cure, permitting production of lenses with several millimeters thickness.   In other applications, L series resins can be used Read More…
