Resolve Optics reports that it has developed and is supplying a 24mm diameter fixed focus non-browning lens to a leader in radiotherapy equipment.
The radiotherapy equipment supplier sought a high resolution lens able to withstand, and precisely focus, the high levels of radiation produced by their synchrotron device onto tumours.
As increasing numbers of people require radiotherapy as a key part of their cancer treatment, there is a need for treatment delivery systems that can deliver precise and accurate care quickly.
Using cerium-doped glasses, Resolve Optics produced a compact f/2.8 lens able to withstand long-term exposure to radiation up to a dose of 100 million radians without discolouration. This new lens is enabling the customer to improve the precision radiotherapy treatment of tumours that its equipment provides.
