Hughes Danbury Optical Systems (Danbury, CT) has begun the baseline production phase of the Rugate Coating Reproducibility Program for the Wright Laboratory of the US Air Force Materiel Command`s Manufacturing Technology Directorate. The 3.5-year, $3.1 million contract is focused on improving the rugate-manufacturing process to increase consistency, yield, and throughput while reducing costs. Rugate coatings are characterized by an index of refraction that varies continuously and periodically as a function of film thickness; they have applications in optical filtering.
