Ball Lens, Optical Balls & Hemispheres
Sapphire, Ruby, Glass, Ceramic and Fused Silica Balls can be made with drilled holes, ground into hemispheres, drum ball lenses and AR coated to minimize reflection for optical applications. Tolerances: Ball Grades Chart
Precision Ball & Optical Ball Applications: fiber optics, flow meters, rotameters, metrology, bar code readers, check valves (ball and seat), wear surfaces.
We offer a range of optical and technical glass balls made mostly from Schott and Ohara materials.
Swiss Jewel supplies hemispheres which are ideal as Hemispherical Lenses and Spacers.
To minimize the loss of the light’s performance, ball lenses will be AR coated.
Swiss Jewel supplies Fused Silica (Quartz) Balls from 0.30 mm to 10.00 mm.
- BK-7 Hemispherical Lenses are perfect for light collimation
