Optical Glass Domes
Optical domes for Pyranometer in High Quality
At CLZ Precision Optics , we specialize in manufacturing glass optical Domes from customer supplied designs. Capable of creating sizes from
10mm to 124mm in Diameter. We are among the very few manufacturers
in the world who possess this technology.
Optical domes are lenses with two concentric spherical surfaces. Sometimes they
are being referred to as bent plan parallel plates. Consequently it
is customary to define parallelism between two surfaces as the
maximum thickness variation between the two surfaces.
In perfect domes the convex radius is equal to the sum of the dome
thickness and concave radius. Slight departures from that rule are
sometimes desired. Optical domes are used in IR missiles, for
underwater photography as part of protective case and as a part of
sun tracking solar collectors.
The Pyranometer need protection of other electronic components and
ability to rely on withstand wind and rain erosion by optical
There have a big optical dome and a small optical domes used to ISO
9060 Secondary Standard and ISO 9060 First Class Pyranometer. The
more common size were 30mm and 50mm optical domes in a few years
ago. With the update of technology, the electronic components
become smaller, Smaller dome is more used.
