Bespoke optical thin-film coating developer Artemis Optical Ltd. has signed a three-year business development and technology partnership with Metamaterial Technologies Inc., a smart materials and photonics company, to develop a hybrid coating for the defense industry.

The companies are pairing up to harness both of their innovative thin-film coating technology to create a hybrid meta filtering solution to combat laser threats for the users of periscopes and sighting systems in armored vehicles. It is expected that the combination of Artemis’ expertise in thin-film deposition with Metamaterial’s patented metamaterial technology will lead the companies to offer variations and enhancement to laser protection filters.

“We’re very excited about this high-tech collaboration,” said Jamie Pindard, sales director of Artemis. “Both companies have already proved their technology in their respective fields. The potential of these new hybrid solutions could prove to be a step change in the way that the industry considers the possibilities of laser protection.”

“We look forward to combine MTI’s strength in flexible, large-scale filters with Artemis Optical, who is an established leading supplier in optical thin-film coatings, to develop the next generation of laser filters,” said George Palikaras, founder and CEO of Metamaterial. “The combination of our technologies will offer unique capabilities for the defense industry globally.”

Artemis Optical manufactures optical thin film coatings for OEMs in defense, aerospace, security, space, photonic surgery, and medical and analytical instrumentation markets.
