UV-Conversion Coatings

ACTON, Mass. — UV-Conversion CoatingsActon Optics & Coatings has announced its UV-conversion coatings, Metachrome and Unichrome.

The composite phosphor coatings provide scientists and engineers with a cost-effective way to improve the UV detection capabilities of CCDs, CIDs and CMOS sensors. Both proprietary coatings extend performance in the UV down to 120 nm. Peak photonic emission of Metachrome occurs in the green-visible region; Unichrome’s peak emission is in the blue-visible range. Utilization of the coatings with front- and back-illuminated devices also renders a much cleaner signal response.

Due to its anti-etaloning effect, Metachrome typically yields a signal that is 7.5× smoother than that of an uncoated back-illuminated sensor. Unichrome typically yields a signal that is 1.5× smoother. Applications include emission spectroscopy, inductively coupled plasma and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy equipment.
