Optical Coating Innovations Push Performance

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
The demands of harsh environments and smart glass are challenging optical coatings manufacturers to improve on control, measurement, and cost.


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
