Kerdry provides optical deposition for wide range of filters

The thin films manufactured by KERDRY make up both the metal deposition intended for component brazing and the dielectric deposition that helps achieve optical functionalities.

The thin films manufactured by Kerdry make up both the metal deposition intended for component brazing and the dielectric deposition that helps achieve optical functionalities. The metal coating deposition (Au, Ag, Al, Ti, Ni/Cr, Cu, etc.) can be achieved on any kind of substrates with precise location upon the parts. The company also provides a range of traditional processing in AR, HR, dichroic or bespoke filters over the 350 nm to 12 µm spectral bandwidth. These thin films also provide a strong coating adhesion, substantial stability in temperature and high resistance to lasers. The company's expertise in photolithography enables the combination of both optical and metal coatings on the same part. Kerdrey will present its thin films for optics at Photonics West 2010 in San Francisco from Jan. 23 to 28 at booth 1823.

PRESS RELEASE

KERDRY'S HIGH-PRECISION THIN FILMS AND METALLICS FOR OPTICS COMING TO PHOTONICS WEST THIS JANUARY

Founded in 2003, the KERDRY company has developed industrial equipment based on technology stemming from applied research laboratories in telecoms. It will be attending the upcoming Photonics West 2010 trade show in San Francisco from Jan. 23 to 28 at booth 1823 to present its thin films for optics.

The thin films manufactured by KERDRY make up both the metal deposition intended for component brazing and the dielectric deposition that helps achieve optical functionalities. The metal coating deposition (Au, Ag, Al, Ti, Ni/Cr, Cu, etc.) can be achieved on any kind of substrates with precise location upon the parts. One should note the company's specific know-how in processing for brazing (positioning, hermetic packaging).

Concerning the optical deposition, KERDRY provides a range of traditional processing in AR, HR, dichroic or bespoke filters over the 350-nanometer to 12-micron spectral bandwidth. These thin films also provide a strong coating adhesion, substantial stability in temperature and high resistance to lasers. KERDRY's expertise in photolithography enables the combination of both optical and metal coatings on the same part.

All production is performed in vacuum-sealed facilities in two categories: electron beam gun evaporation and cathode pulverization. All processing is done inside a 500-sq. m. clean room.

The company is in a position to work to order. It provides its customers with high-quality processing services that precisely meet their specific needs. Constantly seeking to improve its expertise, KERDRY has been nurturing close relationships with universities, engineering schools and research facilities. Thanks to this approach, it is currently established in a wide variety of markets, including the biomedical sector, the defense industry, aeronautics, telecommunications, the luxury industry and research.
