Omega Optical Holdings Acquires Two Companies

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
BRATTLEBORO, Vt., Dec. 20, 2021 — Precision optics company Omega Optical Holdings has acquired Evaporated Metal Films Corp. (EMF) and Optometrics Corp. Omega has completed the acquisition from Dynasil Corp. of America.

The businesses provide Omega with capabilities that complement its focus on serving challenging optical applications in high-growth markets, said Michael Cumbo, CEO of Omega.

“The impressive scale of EMF’s thin-film deposition chambers dramatically increases our ability to offer precision coatings for large optics with diameters up to 2.7 m,” Cumbo said. “Optometrics brings a unique combination of ruled, holographic, replicated, and filtered diffraction gratings that are highly valued, particularly in applications where compactness, efficiency, and precise wavelength selectivity are required.”

EMF joins Omega’s thin-film filters operating division and will play a role in the platform’s nascent laser optics division. Optometrics joins Omega’s diffractive optics operating division.

GLOSSARY
thin film
A thin layer of a substance deposited on an insulating base in a vacuum by a microelectronic process. Thin films are most commonly used for antireflection, achromatic beamsplitters, color filters, narrow passband filters, semitransparent mirrors, heat control filters, high reflectivity mirrors, polarizers and reflection filters.
diffractive optics
Optical elements that use diffraction to control wavefronts. Diffractive optical elements include diffraction gratings, surface-relief diffractive lenses, holographic optical elements and computer-generated holograms. Fabrication methods include diamond machining, interference of coherent beams (holography), injection molding and advanced microlithographic techniques. See also binary optics; holographic optical element.
