Our Winston Cone condenser is a field optic designed for maximum concentration of far infrared and sub millimeter radiation. Its principal functions are to:
Side-by-side comparative performance tests of Winston Cone Optics vs. Spherical/Parabolic Mirror Optics indicate a substantial improvement in collection efficiency with identically shaped detectors.
We maintain an expanding stock of over 75 optical designs, so we may have a design available for you.
Selecting a Winston Cone
There are three parameters that correctly define a Winston Cone, all of which
are dependent on the incoming F/# of light.
1. Entrance Diameter
2. Exit Diameter
One of the most important criteria in defining a Winston Cone is the F/# of the incoming beam. By knowing this value the Winston Cone can be optimized to have maximum concentration.
The next value to define is either the Entrance or Exit Diameter.
Typically, the Exit Diameter is the Detector or Absorber dimension. By tailoring the Winston Cone to the Detector/Absorber dimension, the cone will yield optimal results.
