EMF Rescues and Recoats High-value Optic for Rochester Institute of Technology

“Who is the best optical coating company in the USA?”

Metallic Mirror Coatings

“EMF”, answered Anton Travinsky, an Optical System Engineer at the Rochester Institute of Technology. When Anton discovered that the mirror he had ordered from another vendor was badly damaged he turned to his colleague for help who referred Anton to EMF, a Dynasil company, established in 1936 as the first company in the United States to provide evaporated metal thin film coatings. Anton’s colleague was confident in EMF’s ability to find a solution using its Enhanced Aluminum (AI) coating capabilities.

Michelle Henderson, Sales Account Manager, sprung into action. Once the mirror arrived at EMF, the engineers knew they had their work cut out for them. An initial review of the mirror had the engineers questioning if salvaging the optic and removing its current coating was even possible due to the carelessness of the previous company. However, the team persisted to find a solution.

The engineers at EMF successfully removed the the old coating without damaging the optic and without having the original optic design files on hand. As a final touch, Michelle and team topped off Anton’s experience by having the mirror shipped to him overnight.

“We are very grateful to EMF and to you (Michelle) personally for your help with the re-coating. I will acknowledge EMF in the corresponding academic paper. And, I will be glad to recommend EMF to my colleagues.”
