4D Free-form Silica Glass
This material was developed to solve the ever-increasing challenges of custom and free-form optics. 4D adds an extra dimension for design freedom, enabling the creation of nearly any optical geometry.
Reduction of cost and lead time compared to conventional manufacturing processes
- High performance optical material
Designed to suppress optical losses and ensure high transmittance over a wide range of wavelengths for a variety of applications.
- Free-form flexibility for unlimited optical design potential
Available in a large range of optical geometries without the need for polishing, from lens to windows and completely custom free form optics.*
- Ideal material for demanding application environments
Lighter than typical optical glass materials, 4D free form silica possesses superior heat and chemical resistance properties ideal for difficult environments.
- *maximum size: plate Φ50 mm x 4 mm (thickness)

Parallel plates, hemispherical, plano-convex, aspheric lenses, free-form etc.
Wavelength: 260 nm
Illumination size: 0.8 mm × 0.8 mm, lens distance: 0.2 mm
Illumination detector distance: 7.0 mm, detector size: 7.0 mm × 7.0 mm
- Using a "Hemispherical lens with square flange" can increase the radiant flux to detector by a factor of 2.8x
- Use of other lens types such as an aspherical lens can also increase radiant flux
- Radiant flux to detector increases significantly when used as condenser lens
- Complex features can be achievable by changing the front surface to a more complex optical surface; aspherical, fly’s eye, fresnel etc.
