UQG Optics

Glass Diffusers
UQG custom made glass diffusers are manufactured in a range of technical glasses and optical materials in the (UV) ultraviolet, (VIS) visible and (IR) infrared regions.

Glass diffusers diffuse the incoming light and reduce directionality in the beam. Ground glasses are useful for focusing screens and weak diffusion illumination systems. It is ideal for rear projection and a variety of optical applications.

Our glass diffusers can be made to a range of surface roughness/diffusion from fine etched micron surfaces to course grit grinding or sandblasted.

Supplied in small and production quantities in a choice of glass diffusers.

Flashed Opal Diffusers
UQG custom made flashed opal diffusers have one surface flashed with a white opal layer. It can produce near lambertian source, diffusing light thoroughly with a high amount of scattering lost ideal when intense diffusing is required.

Flashed opal glass sheets are stocked ready to process to custom sizes in small and production quantities.
