ISP Optics Silicon (Si) Windows provide transmission in the Near-Infrared (NIR) and Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) from 1.2 - 7μm. Silicon features a Knoop Hardness of 1150, making it harder and less brittle than Germanium. A High-Durability Anti-Reflection (HDAR) coating option increases the durability of the substrate while significantly improving transmission from 3 - 5μm, enabling use in harsh environments. ISP Optics Silicon (Si) Windows are ideal for weight-sensitive IR applications due to its low density of 2.329 g/cm3, which is half as dense as Germanium and Zinc Selenide. These windows are ideal for NIR imaging applications and are important for detection of sources radiating at a black body temperature of 700K.
