Custom Design and Engineering

  • Full team of experienced design and manufacturing engineers collaborate to optimize a design for your custom application.
  • Design team utilizes a well calibrated computer model that is consistently updated to ensure accuracy of designs.
  • Custom coatings designed and produced include thousands of prior designs for a wide variety of applications.
  • Designing and manufacturing the most complicated optical coatings.

Coating Chambers

  • Depositions are produced in a series of custom in-house designed coating chambers.
  • Chamber sizes range from 32″ up to 54″ diameter.
  • Coatings are precisely controlled using a combination of optical and crystal quartz monitoring techniques.
  • Ion-assisted deposition is a key component in producing durable coatings.  IAD allows high quality coatings to be manufactured in each of the 32″ to 54″ coating chambers.
  • Large area substrates and higher quantity work are handled efficiently.  Tooling is also available for substrates up to 36″ in diameter.
  • 54″, 5/8″, 3/4″ and can coat to 1 meter.

Substrate Size and Shape Specifications

  • Small sizes – down to 0.1″
  • Larger sizes – standard sizes up to 24″ in diameter and custom sizes up to 1 meter.
  • Thin substrates and Thick substrates
  • Lenses, flats, blocks, wedges, and fibers


  • Spectrophotometers – can measure 175nm up to 20um  wavelength in transmission and reflection
