Title: Novel Polymers for Mid- and Long-Wave Infrared Imaging
Invention: New polymer compositions that are transmissive for mid-wave infrared (3-5 microns) and long-wave infrared (8-12 microns) sensing and imaging.
Background: Infrared imaging conventionally uses expensive inorganic transmissive materials for lenses, such as chalcogenide glass and amorphous germanium, which require cutting and polishing. This inventive polymer-based transmissive medium can be formed using scalable, inexpensive polymer production processes.
• Useful for mid- or long-wave IR applications
