Case Study: Enhancing Precision with the 25X Objective Lens

The 25X objective lens holds paramount importance in various scientific disciplines, notably in Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (IRMS) systems. Its application spans across fields like earth science, environmental science, metallurgy, semiconductors, and materials science, empowering researchers with enhanced magnification for precise analysis of microscopic samples. This lens serves as a cornerstone in scientific exploration, contributing significantly to both research endeavors and technological advancements.


Custom-designed for mass spectrometer systems, the 25X objective lens plays a pivotal role in the separation and detection of isotopes, operating on the principle of charged particle deflection in an electromagnetic field. This capability facilitates detailed compositional analysis, thereby enriching the understanding of different isotopes within mass spectrometry.

Ensuring High Resolution in Diverse Environments

Achieving high resolution in both high and low-temperature environments is critical for this project, necessitating special considerations for adhesion and bonding processes to ensure optimal sealing and dust-free operation within the lens. In high-temperature settings, materials must withstand heat expansion while maintaining structural integrity, often necessitating advanced cooling systems and thermal insulation. Conversely, in low-temperature environments, preventing component freezing and ensuring consistent performance are paramount, requiring effective temperature control mechanisms and insulation. Adhesive selection, precise bonding processes, sealing integrity, and dust-free requirements are meticulously addressed to guarantee stable equipment operation across extreme temperature conditions.

Lens Performance

Through meticulous optimization, our product surpasses objective lenses offered by leading companies, offering significant advantages. Firstly, production costs are reduced through intelligent design processes and efficient manufacturing technologies, enhancing market competitiveness. Secondly, imaging quality is elevated through optimized optical configurations and high-quality lens materials, providing clearer and more authentic image reproduction for enhanced observational experiences in materials science and molecular research.


The 25X objective lens revolutionizes mass spectrometer applications across various scientific domains, ensuring high resolution across diverse temperatures while meeting rigorous adhesion and sealing standards. Outperforming competitors, this lens not only cuts costs but also enhances imaging quality, making it indispensable for scientific progress. Key features like a large numerical aperture (NA), long working distance, high resolution, and wider field of view (FOV) further enhance its performance, meeting the evolving demands of modern research and technology.
