UV lenses are lenses optimized for operation in ultraviolet wavelength ranges, so typically in spectrum under 400 nm.
Solaris Optics produces custom ultraviolet lenses in its premises in Poland.
Typical materials used for ultaviolet lenses inlcude fused silica or CaF2. Such optics is also covered with thin film layers in order to reduce reflections in UV spectrum as well as to reduce transmission of undesirable wavelengths, outside of UV spectrum.
