Applied Optics CenterApplied Optics Center (AOC) is a world-class designer and manufacturer of precision optical components and assemblies utilizing our extensive thin-film coating and optical assembly expertise. For over 50 years, our state-of-the-art facility in Dallas, TX has produced a wide range of commercial and military optical coatings and precision assembled products. We have a variety of unique and proprietary processes that set us apart in the industry, including: Thin Film Coatings, High-volume Optical Assembly and Subsystems, Integrated Design and Manufacturing, Large-Format Coating Capability, World-Class Optical Metrology, and Rapid Component and Subsystem Prototyping.

AOC has recently developed a new line of enhanced, protected gold optical coatings for deposition on large-format, high-value substrates. The gold thin-film coatings are ideal for deposition on lightweight optical elements for applications where weight and performance are critical design factors, such as terrestrial and airborne imaging systems. 

Our premier coating capability allows us to manufacture coatings and optical components for high-volume production as well as smaller custom volumes and prototypes. The AOC has as a foundation of long-standing expertise in thin-film coating technology, from the deep UV to the far IR portions of the spectrum. We have a solid history of success in a variety of thin-film based products. From start to finish, we're the best choice for premier optical solutions.

We are proud to be the largest manufacturer of laser protection filters, binoculars, sighting systems and related products for the U.S. Army. But we never rest, and will continue to evolve our processes and skills to meet tomorrow's challenges. Whether you need low-volume, precision optical assemblies or high-volume, custom-coated optics, we have what it takes to help you accomplish your mission. From start to finish, we're the best choice to provide optical solutions for your applications.
