ONTARIO, N.Y., Aug. 26, 2013 — The third and final phase of a $10 million, 4000-sq-ft expansion of Optimax System Inc.'s optical coating facility is now complete, providing space for more than 50 additional employees.

The expansion houses eight optical coating chambers and three environmental chambers for cleaning, coating and testing optics. Coatings can be manufactured for wavelengths from 193 to 6000 nm with diameters up to 500 mm.

Optimax offers deep-UV through mid-IR coatings; high laser damage threshold coatings for pulsed and CW applications; uniform coatings for fast surfaces and large diameters; shift-free coatings; and low coating stress for improved wavefront control.

The company creates prototypes for applications in the aerospace, display, solar, semiconductor, and medical and military sectors.

deep ultraviolet
Deep ultraviolet (DUV or deep-UV) refers to a specific range of ultraviolet light with shorter wavelengths than those in the UV-A and UV-B regions. The exact wavelength range considered as DUV can vary, but it often includes wavelengths from around 100 to 300 nanometers. DUV light is shorter in wavelength and higher in energy than visible light. DUV light covers the spectrum from approximately 100 to 300 nanometers. This range is subdivided into different sub-bands, such as UV-C (100 to...
