Optics Application Portals

Find Optics Fast!

Selecting the proper optic for any application is a challenge. Newport has come up with a novel approach to assist with your optics selection process. We've created application portals that provide recommended part numbers and families for your particular application. Each portal also contains useful information that pertain to your specific application such as web links to application notes, white papers, web converters, online databases, and technical notes. Please check back frequently to see what new application portals have been created.

Be sure to see our recent white paper written specifically to assist with specifying ultrafast optics.
