Zoom Lens for Nuclear Sensors Offers Solution to Image Discoloration

Resolve Optics new lens withstands up to one hundred million rads without tinting images yellow By DA Editor / 05 Apr 2022

Resolve Optics has unveiled its new high clarity zoom lens for nuclear sensors. The Model 357 Non-Browning Zoom lens delivers clear, sharp images free of the strong yellow tint that has traditionally been a limiting issue for color sensors used in high radiation environments.

Designed for use with color CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensors that operate in environments such as nuclear fuel handling sites and waste storage plants – the Model 357 provides true High-Definition quality images over a 10x zoom range. Operating at f/1.8, Model 357 offers high image resolution and minimum geometric distortion from 400 nm to 750 nm and can image objects from 800 mm to infinity without add-on adapters.

All optical elements within the Model 357 use special cerium oxide doped glass, enabling it to withstand radiation doses of up to one hundred million rads and temperatures up to 55 °C without discoloration or degradation of performance.
