New thin-film optical coatings are ideal for lightweight, low-cost optics

Deposition Sciences has introduced optical coatings on plastic materials and substrates. The new optical thin-film coatings can be deposited on materials such as Ultem, Zeonex, and a variety of polycarbonate plastics. The extremely rugged and reliable coatings for plastic optics operate from the visible through the infrared spectral wavelengths.

Deposition Sciences has introduced optical coatings on plastic materials and substrates. The new optical thin-film coatings can be deposited on materials such as Ultem, Zeonex, and a variety of polycarbonate plastics. The extremely rugged and reliable coatings for plastic optics operate from the visible through the infrared spectral wavelengths. Thin-film plastic coatings are ideal for diverse applications where lightweight and low-cost optics are specified, such as LED lighting and medical devices. Other applications include UAV optics and photovoltaic solar systems. DSI's highly durable optical thin-film coatings include band-pass filters, dichroic coatings, high reflectors, and various metals coatings. DSI's proprietary MicroDyn sputtering deposition technology yields high-performance coatings on plastics, metals, and other thin film materials.

DSI's New Optical Coatings on Plastics

New thin film optical coatings are ideal for lightweight, low cost optics

Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI), manufacturer of highly durable thin film optical coatings, introduces optical coatings on plastic materials and substrates. The new optical thin film coatings can be deposited on materials such as Ultem, Zeonex, and a variety of polycarbonate plastics. The extremely rugged and reliable coatings for plastic optics operate from the visible through the infrared spectral wavelengths. Thin film plastic coatings are ideal for diverse applications where lightweight and low cost optics are specified, such as LED lighting and medical devices. Other applications include UAV optics and photovoltaic solar systems.

DSI's highly durable optical thin film coatings include band pass filters, dichroic coatings, high reflectors, and various metals coatings. DSI's proprietary MicroDyn® sputtering deposition technology yields high performance coatings on plastics, metals, and other thin film materials, enables superior multilayer thin film coatings for optics, MEMS and other thin film nano-technologies. This highly durable, patented uniform coating will pass the stringent environmental tests of 24 hour humidity, adhesion and moderate abrasion.
