Sapphire and Glass Ball Lenses boost fiber-optic performance under even the harshest conditions.


Demanding industrial and environmental conditions are no match for fiber-optic Ball Lenses engineered of synthetic Sapphire and Glass Ball Lenses, now available in an extensive range of stock sizes from Swiss Jewel Company, of Philadelphia , PA.

Optical Ball Lenses boost fiber-optic performance by expanding and collimating the light beams without the need for direct physical contact. That’s where Sapphire’s extreme optical clarity and natural durability (9 mohs) make it the ideal choice for fiber-optic applications in any environment, including harsh industrial, aviation, medical and military applications.

Swiss Jewel also offers Ball Lenses in a range of high-performance materials best suited for fiber-optic applications, including Fused Silica for high transmission from UV to NIR (200-2,000nm) and BK-7 optical glass for fiber collimating.

To minimize the loss of light and boost efficiency, all Swiss Jewel Ball Lenses are available with single-band or multi-band Anti-Reflection (AR) coating, which increases transmissions and improves fiber-optic connections.

And for fiber-optic applications requiring a more compact design, Swiss Jewel offers Hemisphere Lenses in a range of optical materials, as well. With an extensive selection of stock sizes starting at diameters as low as 0.20mm, Swiss Jewel Company offers precision- engineered Ball Lenses ready for same-day delivery.
