Advanced optical thin-film coating technology is instrumental for the manufacturing of filters, mirrors, or beamsplitters with superior optical characteristics. Monitored control of the coating process allows optical components to be precisely matched to the requirements of the microscope's imaging system. In applications such as fluorescence microscopy, parameters such as edge steepness or optical blocking (optical density) are factors that decisively affect the quality of the generated signal.
