Precision Pinholes are high quality apertures centered to ±0.002" (50 microns). They are constructed of stainless steel and are 3/8" (9.5mm) in diameter. Smaller diameter pinholes will reduce energy throughput, while larger diameter pinholes will pass more spatial noise. Precision pinholes have sizes ranging from 1 to 1,000 microns. Typical applications include leak detection, aerosol studies, holography, fiber optics guides, spatial filtering, research, and more.
Use the Precision Pinhole Mount to integrate unmounted pinholes into a variety of mechanical components easily.
Precision Pinholes are available in aperture mounts for secure mechanical support. The mounts also fit into various optical assemblies. Each 9.5mm diameter pinhole is sealed within a 25mm diameter black-anodized aluminum mount. The mount is clearly labeled with a pinhole aperture diameter for easy identification.
Note: Aperture Centering to Mount ±125 microns.
