SANTA ANA, Calif., March 9, 2010 – Precision Glass & Optics is offering advanced thin-film coatings, commercial optics and standard and customized precision optics. The in-house facility specializes in plano optical components, from prisms to windows, beamsplitters, light pipes, optical mirrors and retroreflectors.

The company can quickly provide a variety of glass- and thin-film coated optical materials, from square, rectangular and/or circular parts. Optics can be customized or shipped from in-stock items, with 48-h turnaround. Fabrication services include the new abrasive water-jet technology, laser engraving, annealing, CNC machining, drilling, double-sided grinding and polishing, diamond bandsawing, slicing and scribing.

The company’s polishing capabilities (up to 914.4 mm Ø) typically achieve flatness to lambda/20, parallelism to 1 arc second and tolerances to ± .0127 mm. Thermal and chemical tempering is also available to meet the most demanding part-strengthening requirements. Implementing the fundamentals of MIL-I-45208A as well as the optical manufacturing disciplines of MIL-PRF-13830B, the company’s glass, optics, and thin-film coating services are suitable for a variety of military and defense tasks.

Other applications include biomedical, solar, imaging, scanning, digital cinema and laser manufacturing.

The process of heating and slowly cooling a solid material, like glass or metal, to stabilize its thermal, electrical or optical properties or, as in semiconductor materials, to reverse lattice damage resulting from ion implantation of dopants.
The optical process, following grinding, that puts a highly finished, smooth and apparently amorphous surface on a lens or a mirror.
The successive analysis or synthesizing of the light values or other similar characteristics of the components of a picture area, following a given method.
The process of perforating a silicon or ceramic substrate with a series of tiny holes along which it will break. Nd:YAG or CO2 lasers are now routinely used.
