BK7 is borosilicate crown optical glass with an excellent physical and chemical properties for applications in visible and near IR. Large BK7 glass with high homogeneity, low bubble and inclusion content can be produced at a large quantity and at low cost, making it the standard material for optical components (uncoated or coated) in visible and IR.
Newlight Photonics offers circular/rectangular BK7 windows or rods with thickness from 0.15 mm to 300 mm.
Various high quality HR, AR, and partial reflective coatings are available upon request.
