Lenses Infrared, X-Ray, Space

Optec SWIR lenses are optimized to work in three bands of use: the classic SWIR band, ranging from 900nm to 1700nm, the higher SWIR band, ranging from 1700nm-2400nm and the full extended band, ranging 900-2400nm.
Customers can select the version that bests suits their needs on Optec’s catalogue.

There is the only company in the world to have a high performance SWIR line, with a focal lengths over  100mm in its catalogue, and that is Optec.
Optec SWIR line-up covers all the range of focal lengths that the market requires, from the smallest 16mm wide-angles, to super-telephotos focal length of 1000mm.
In addition the prime line-up, Optec produces various models of standard zoom lens like the worldwide famous 75-500mm, the 24-140mm, and the upcoming 20-200 mm now in final engineering phase.

Optec’s SWIR lenses are available in different versions, with or without iris, with motorized focus and / or motorized iris and all the line-up is available with various camera mounts fitting every available camera on the market.
In fact, all the lenses can be used with cameras with Nikon mount, Canon FD, Canon EOS, M42 Screw, C-Mount and CS-Mounts and up to 20.5mm diagonal detectors.
In addition to these standard interfaces, Optec is able to provide custom bayonets mounts upon customer request.
Each customer can select the version that best suits his needs on Optec’s Catalogue or inquire for a special customized version that will meet his requirements.

Every Optec SWIR lens is internally coated with a specifically designed for the SWIR range black coating, able to minimize stray light and ghost images that would create disturbances to the image. In addition, lenses and anti-reflection coatings are specifically designed for the SWIR range in order to optimize the transmission and minimize optical aberrations.

Optec SWIR lenses are designed to ensure high performance and resistance in harsh environments. Custom solutions can be studied, upon customer request, to resist to high pressure/vacuum and structural or thermal loads. In addition, special alloys could be used to optimize weight on payload weight sensitive applications.

Each lens can be customized or designed to meet customer specifications.

Optec SWIR lenses are tested and certified one by one.
A Certificate of Conformity (CoC) accompanies each lens.
On Optec website, on the proper page, the customer can download the certificate at any time by entering the Part Number and the Serial Number of the purchased lens.

On request, specific tests such as vibration, shock or heat can be performed

Ophir Thermal Imaging Lenses Catalog (8.4MB)


Diagnostic Digital Imaging is now the main technology used for medical application: Radiological imaging systems have developed, in close parallel with X-RAY image intensifiers, lens systems to transfer the image from this image intensifier to Camera Devices



Optec has designed and implemented complex optical systems for applications that work with visible wavelength range (380-760nm) since it was founded in 1985.


It has been several year that Optec is working in International space programs. It all started in 1992 with innovative optical system developed for the Spacelab, Mission D2, designed to be used on the Advanced Fluid Physics Module (AFPM) experiment.


Ophir’s lenses are integrated into the most sophisticated thermal imaging and radiometric products.


With our in-house, full optical capabilities, we are well positioned to serve the commercial FLIR and Thermography (radiometric) lens markets.


Ophir provides a wide range of Infrared optical solutions for a variety of Homeland Security Systems.
