Photonics Spectra
Nov 2018
The demands of harsh environments and smart glass are challenging optical coatings manufacturers to improve on control, measurement, and cost.

HANK HOGAN, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR, hank.hogan@photonics.com

Optical coatings improve the performance of mirrors, lenses, and light-emitting or absorbing semiconductors by enhancing transmission and reducing reflection. They also harden surfaces, allowing components to withstand harsh environments or take pounding from high-power lasers. To continue to meet rising demands, however, coatings need advancements in control, measurements, and cost — areas vendors seek to address by rolling out innovations. A case in point comes from photonic
