Through hardship to the stars — Russian scientific research are published

Everyone knows perfectly well laser cutting, thermal imaging equipment and optical guidance systems in military vehicles. And everyone knows the high price of this equipments.

But few people know that the great part of their value is speializirovannaya optics, which have to be purchased only abroad, as Russia, until recently, this segment has not been given sufficient attention.

In this article we want to talk about that in this segment has finally been a serious event — the opening of a new production of optical materials IR, UV and visible spectra. Group of companies R’AIN Group starts near Nizhny Novgorod vysoktehnologichny modern plant selenide and zinc sulfide.

This company was established on the basis of the Nizhny Novgorod Scientific-production company "NN Optics" and is an important step in getting rid of nodes according to the most important high-tech equipment from foreign components.

Facilities allow potrebnstey cover 90% of the Russian defense industry in this segment and more than 30% of the civil sector. 

The company uses the most modern equipment allows to produce optical materials and optics meets the highest international quality standards.

In addition, the company provides a full range of services for processing and coated optics forming a complete production cycle from manufacturing vysokchistogo raw materials to manufacturing finished products suitable international level.

The main advantages are the ability to manufacture mass production of optics and laser-quality crystal growth of very large sizes. By the way, crystals of such sizes may produce only a few companies worldwide.

The technology of growing crystals of zinc selenide and zinc sulfide based on the method of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is sufficiently studied, but, as we know, the devil is in the details, and it is in the vast store of scientific research and knowledge, which can be neither bought nor receive or in any other way.

For example, many companies have tried and are trying to produce such materials, but the quality and size of the crystals are sufficient only for a very limited range of applications.

Telling example, the Chinese, even having obtained the technology can not get the same stuff.

Separately, to mention the production of optical materials for the needs of the defense industry. Here, the material is more need for strength characteristics, and this is understandable, because it is made of zinc sulfide protective caps for heat-seeking missiles, as well as optical and radar stations fighters.

To manufacture these products we use technology called hot isostatic pressing (HIP), which allows to obtain a very strong zinc sulfide while maintaining high transmission properties in the infrared spectrum.

It should be noted that the production of high-tech innovation made possible by the collective coherence of leading Russian scientists from the Institute of Chemistry Vysokchistyh Substances them. GG Ninth Academy of Sciences in research in this field for more than 30 years, without which the production of optical materials such quality would not be possible in principle, and a small group of young talented managers who are ready to sacrifice everything for the sake of their time of development of Russian science and industry.

Now you can be quiet for one more high-tech sector in which we do not surrender to foreign manufacturers.
