Deposition Sciences, manufacturer of thin film optical coatings, has announced an enhanced capability to apply highly specialised, durable coatings onto extremely complex shapes and multifaceted surfaces.
Using DSI’s proprietary IsoDyn LPCVD (low pressure chemical vapour deposition), this method is ideal for coating almost all types of optical glass crystalline materials, ceramics and metals. It is also ideal for coating a wide variety of unusual geometries: from ball lenses to dome windows; from optical fibres to cold mirror reflectors.
Director of marketing and sales Michael Newell said: 'We are very excited to announce this enhanced capability in uniform, optical thin film coatings. DSI’s IsoDyn LPCVD process, a high temperature process (approx. 500 degrees C), is used in the manufacture of micro-optics, interference filter coatings (such as single wavelength, dual band, and broadband AR), cold mirrors, conductive coatings, and dichroics.
'Our enhanced method is permitting exceptionally conformal coatings on many complex substrate geometries.'
