World Leader in High Performance, Durable Optical Thin-Film Coatings

Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI®) produces a wide variety of highly reliable, durable, and heat-resistant optical coatings. Our exclusive technologies and custom deposition technologies offer coatings in the visible (VIS), near-infrared (NIR), shortwave infrared (SWIR), and midwave-infrared (MWIR) spectral wavelengths.

Filter family from Deposition SciencesSince 1985, DSI has provided optical coating solutions for military and defense, aerospace, intelligence, surveillance and security (ISR) and missile targeting applications. With collaborative product development, we deliver unique thin-film solutions, developed with proprietary coating processes, and engineering excellence for real-world challenges. DSI's custom-built coating chambers. Our patented processes provide robust, reliable, and highly durable thin-film coatings on a wide variety of flexible materials and substrates of various sizes

MicroDyn® Reactive Sputtering Coating Process

Sunshade from Deposition SciencesDSI’s proprietary MicroDyn coating technology accommodates the varied and often rigorous demands placed on thin film coatings.

The MicroDyn® process is a short-throw reactive sputtering process. Highly flexible with the capability to deposit metals, metal oxides, nitrides, mixed materials with fixed or graded compositions, ITO and semiconductor materials. MicroDyn coatings, including complex filters can be patterned using both contact masking and photolithography. Coatings are space qualified and meet all applicable military specifications

DSI has the expertise to participate at any level of your product development. From engineering to prototyping to full-scale manufacturing, we will work with you to develop designs, manufacturable specifications, and manufacturing techniques to meet your system level requirements.
