Helia uses a wide range of materials along with well-established deposition techniques to fabricate coatings with excellent optical performance and resistance to high-power densities and extreme environments. These innovative processes have been developed over many years in conjunction with extensive industrial and academic collaborations, producing coatings designed for wavelengths from the ultraviolet (UV) to far-infrared (FIR) region.

Brilliant Optics supplies custom optical components and assemblies, specializing in super-polished mirrors, windows, and couplers that have high laser damage thresholds for high-power optical environments. Available services include complex module design and assembly for a wide range of applications and industries including machine vision, space and instrumentation, as well as specialist lenses (aspheric, ball, cylinder, toroidal) and fiber-optic components in materials such as plastic and visible/IR glasses.
