Meller Optics, manufacturer of high-precision custom optical windows, domes, and lenses, has released a whitepaper focusing on sapphire and how the material can help solve complex engineering design problems.
Sapphire is a tough optical material resistant to chemicals, scratching, and high pressure, and has exceptional transparency, making it ideal for optics used on submersibles, UUV, and ROV, as well as aerospace applications including optics for onboard imaging, sensing and targeting systems used on drones and UAV.
