Custom Made Refractive Index Liquids

Custom Blended Liquids

Please contact us prior to ordering custom blended liquids to confirm pricing.

We also recommend that you complete our Optical Liquid Tech Form.

Immersion Liquid formulations are custom blended at 589.3 nm and 25°C to an accuracy of ±0.0005 in the range of n1.293 – 1.700.

Laser Liquids formulations are custom blended at 589.3 nm and 25°C to an accuracy of ±0.0002 in the range of nD 1.2930 – 1.6300.

Deviations from the standard specifications are available for changes in wavelength, temperature and accuracy at an additional cost.
