Glossary
  • antifog coating A coating that is capable of stopping the condensation of moisture on an optical surface.
  • liquid coating A self-healing, index-matching, nonporous coating for optical components that can eliminate production difficulties and deficiencies associated with solid-film contamination and postdeposition absorption.
  • protective coating A film applied to a coated or uncoated optical surface primarily for protecting this surface from mechanical abrasion, from chemical corrosion, or from both. For example, a thin layer of silicon monoxide may be added to protect an aluminized surface.
