Oil and gas exploration and extraction create complex demands for optical systems which function under extraordinarily demanding conditions and Ely Optics have worked with some of the biggest names in the industry to meet these needs. On project involved the design of optical interfaces for down well instrumentation where single mode fibre optics had to be mated several kilometres down an oil well. We have designed a variety of lenses for CMOS devices for down well inspection, all engineered to withstand the hazardous and high temperature environment of wells.
