Anti-reflective (AR) optical coatings for biomedical and life sciences applications from Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O; Santa Ana, CA) are ideal for coating on quartz, BK-7, glass, and other optical materials. The AR coatings range from 250 to 2500 nm, and can accommodate custom operational wavelengths and angle requirements.



Dec. 7, 2010 – Santa Ana, CA – Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O), global experts in optical manufacturing and precision thin film coatings, offer anti-reflective (AR) optical coatings for biomedical and life sciences applications. Ideal for coating on quartz, BK-7, glass, and a wide variety of other optical materials, the reliable AR coatings improve performance in optical systems, increasing transmission and enhancing contrast. PG&O optical thin film coating capabilities include a chamber that can coat four, 24” diameter substrates.

PG&O provides anti-reflection coatings ranging from 250 nm to 2500 nm, including standard broadbands, V-Coatings, and double V-Coatings matched to a variety of substrates as well as single layer magnesium fluoride (MgF2). The standard broadband coatings are ideal for many research and industrial tasks and perform exceptionally well on all optical materials. AR coatings can be designed to accommodate custom operational wavelength(s) and angle requirements.

The company also houses an extensive glass inventory to provide high performance optical components for the most demanding medical and bioinstrumentation tasks. In addition to optical coatings, the in-house facility has state-of-the-art glass fabrication equipment, including grinding, polishing, machining, scribing, engraving, and assembly. PG&O provides quick turnaround on a large variety of glass and thin film coated optical materials, from square, rectangular, and/or circular parts, to complex shapes and all types of precision optical prisms. These can either be customized to exact specifications or shipped from in-stock items, within a 48-hour turn around, for time-critical projects (see website for details).

Precision Glass & Optics also serves the military/defense, solar, imaging, aerospace, scanning, digital cinema, astronomy, laser manufacturing industries, and more. For more information, please visit:
