PG&O Installs Eddy Monitoring System

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Glass and optics provider Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O) has announced the successful installation of the SL-2012A SpectraLock index dispersion enhanced monitoring (IDEM) system from optical monitor provider Eddy Co.

IDEM“We are excited to announce our enhanced optical coating capabilities with the installation of Eddy Co.’s special index dispersion enhanced monitoring system,” said Dan Bukaty Jr., president of PG&O. “We can now produce optical thin films that perfectly match our design programs and we can accurately predict the films our chambers produce with optical thickness monitoring and control from 1 nm to over
5000 nm. In short, our optical thin films are about 10× more precise than previously available.”

The advanced system provides in situ optical monitoring and rate control to produce single- and multi-layered thin films with precision and accuracy.

“We’re pleased with the opportunity to partner with Precision Glass & Optics, upgrading their precision optical coating chambers to the next level,” said Wayne Rodgers, president of Eddy. “The newly installed computer and software system provides calibration of the exact refractive index dispersion for each material and process used. With the SL-2012A SpectraLock in place, the thin-film design program and the optical monitoring controller produce optical coatings that precisely match the design every time, without iteration or error. It is a revolutionary development in optical coating technology that has been field-proven and now lies in PG&O’s capable hands.”

PG&O is a developer of high-quality, precision glass, optics and optical coatings for a variety of applications. Eddy specializes in supply solutions for the production of complex precision optical coatings including bandpass filters, beamsplitters and lasers.
