LightPath Technologies' paper entitled "An Investigation of Material Properties for a Selection of Chalcogenide Glasses for Precision Glass Molding," which will be presented at the SPIE Security and Defense Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, is a detailed analysis of the material properties of chalcogenide materials and documents the feasibility of these materials in high volume applications from material procurement, manufacturing, performance, and cost perspectives.

LightPath's Vice President of Corporate Engineering, Alan Symmons stated, "The importance of these papers and the underlying work cannot be overstated. LightPath Technologies continues to push the forefront in precision glass molding of Chalcogenide glasses and a paper like this only increases the general acceptance of the material, as it displaces Germanium throughout the industry. LightPath is committed to being a world leader in the production of precision glass molded Chalcogenide lenses and in the research and development of these glasses."

Mr. Symmons continued, "We have significantly increased our R&D activities over the last year at LightPath Technologies, and our research, contained in this paper and our other recent publications indicates that there is indeed good science that supports our strategy to penetrate the infrared imaging markets with Chalcogenide."

LightPath Technologies is a global leader in the manufacture and distribution of molded glass optics for a variety of applications including telecommunications, defense, medical and industrial-laser optics.  LightPath has applied the knowledge and experience developed over the last twenty five years in the visible optics market to develop a low-cost manufacturing technique for the production of infrared optics.  Applications of infrared and thermal imaging technology have grown dramatically over the last ten years into various markets including industrial inspection, automotive safety, chemical and biological sensing and security and surveillance – markets that are expected to generate over $20 billion in system-wide sales in 2014.
