With time-proven, viable and economical manufacturing methods, we offer an extensive selection of catalog optical filters, as well as custom sizes and thicknesses built according to OEM specification, optimized for our customers’ applications. End product size ranges from millimeters to meters, and may be flat, curved, or flexible films depending on coating type.
From our production facility in Massachusetts, and corporate affiliated manufacturing locations in Ithaca and Rochester New York, Optometrics provides innovative thin film coating solutions from a mix of more than 30 vacuum deposition chambers ranging in size from R&D bell jar to 3 meters. Deposition technologies include advanced IAD “hard films,” electron beam, thermal evaporation, as well as proprietary hybrid methods. Capacity exceeds 500,000 ft2 per year.
Dyna-Film Bandpass OEM Filters
The optical coating technology and construction method used to produce Dyna-Film optical bandpass filters enables a low cost alternative to the expensive and often unnecessary use of magnetron sputtered hard films. Very often, Dyna-Film filters provide higher transmission, greater blocking, and similar costs to traditional thermal evaporated coatings, saving the instrument manufacturer money, and enabling higher signal to noise dynamic range.
ION Assisted Deposition
Advanced Ion Assisted thin film deposition (IAD) of refractory oxides provides exceptional environmental durability and enables the design and manufacture of complex coating designs exposed to the atmosphere on a large variety of substrate materials.
Traditional Thin Film Coatings
With a time-proven, viable and economical approach, we produce narrow and broadband bandpass filters with central wavelengths from 330 –1650 nm. We also offer an extensive selection of catalog optical filters, as well as custom sizes and thicknesses.
Laser Protection Coatings
We team with you to provide custom designed Laser Protection Coatings on your specified substrate materials using hard dielectric thin film deposition throughout the retinal hazard region of 400 – 1,400 nm.
Our laser eye, electronic equipment, and sensor protection coatings provide high optical density at very specific wavelengths while maximizing Visible Light Transmission (VLT) for improved visible color recognition.
Various absorptive, reflective, and a hybrid of absorptive and reflective component integration schemes are utilized to provide cost effective laser safety solutions requiring single wavelength, multiple wavelength, and wide spectral band protection on eyeglass lenses, goggles, and windows made from many types of glasses and plastics.
Quality is assured through state-of-the-art testing & metrology.
