Optical-grade Spectralon reflectance material is characterized by a high reflectance and lambertian behavior over the UV-VIS-NIR wavelength region. The reflectance of Spectralon is >99% over the wavelength range from 400 to 1500 nm, and >95% over the wavelength range from 250 to 2500 nm. This wide range of high reflectance allows for the material to be used from the UV into the NIR region of the spectrum. The material is ideal for fabrication of components such as integrating spheres, lamp housings, backlight panels, line illuminators and panel reflectors.

Optical-grade Spectralon is hydrophobic and thermally stable to 350C. It is chemically inert to all but the most powerful bases such as sodium amide and organo-sodium of lithium compounds. The material is durable and maintains consistent reflectance even under harsh laboratory or field conditions. The use of optical-grade Spectralon assures the user of highly accurate, reproducible spectral data when used in the construction of optical components.

Applications

  • Fluorescence Chambers
  • Improvement of Light Source Uniformity
  • Improvement of Detector Performance
  • Photomicroscopy
  • Transillumination
  • UV-VIS-NIR Diffusion

Spectralon diffusion material consists of thin sections, generally between 0.1 and 1.0 mm, of specially formulated Spectralon designed to transmit and efficiently scatter incident light. Diffusers fabricated from Spectralon are particularly useful for broad-band diffusion of optical radiation, from the UV spectral region to the NIR spectral region. Spectralon diffusion material is invaluable in reducing the sensitivity of detectors to beam alignment and improving the uniformity of light sources.

These diffusers have a useful range of 200-2500 nm, and are significantly more diffuse than double-ground quartz.
