Our Standard Thin Film Coatings

Please click here for customized coatings

We fabricate high quality optical thin-film coatings for all kinds of applications. In this overview, you will find our standard coatings, categorized into three groups. The first group is consisting of transparent thin-film coatings, which are mainly used for light transmitting applications. The second group consists of mirror coatings for mainly reflective use. The last category contains thin-film coatings for lighting technology.

The deposition of these thin-film coated materials takes place at regular intervals, to guarantee best possible availability. This way, even the manufacturing of optics with custom dimensions according to your specifications based on the thin-films listed below usually can be offered within extraordinarily short delivery times. For optical components based on any of our standard thin-film coatings even at large quantities, our advanced manufacturing capabilities enable a typical lead time of only 1-2 weeks.

And we can be even faster! Since 2017 you can take advantage of our advanced 48h-Express Service, which are feasible for most of these thin-film coatings. Of course the exact possible lead time is depending on the complexity of the part, required precision, the materials, the shape of the optics and on the additional machining steps required to process it.

For custom thin-film coating services the lead time depends on how long the coating deposition process will take. With our quotation, you always get a reliable information about the expected delivery time. Please succeed to the links below to view the data-sheets of our standard thin-film coated materials:

 

Transparent Thin-Film Coatings

 

ITO-Coating, Indium-Tin Oxide coatings, CEC-Series

We manufacture various electrically conductive, optically transparent ITO-coatings on special high quality glass materials. They are available with a wide range of film thicknesses and different substrate materials that are almost always available. The deposition of our ITO-coatings is based on sputtering process technology. more...

 

Broadband Multilayer Anti-Reflection Coating, ARC-Series (VIS)

Our ARC coatings are efficient, optical anti-reflection coatings that can drastically reduce glass surface reflections and ghost-imaging. These thin-film coatings can significantly increase light transmission and feature a low residual reflection. The coatings are available on various glass substrate materials. more...

 

Front Surface Mirror Coatings

 

Enhanced Aluminium Mirror Coating, SEA-VIS Series (VIS)

The SEA-VIS mirror has an aluminum metal thin-film coating with additional dielectric multilayer thin films, that protects and enhances the reflectivity of the aluminum coating. The overcoatings are optimized for visible wavelengths. These optics can also be utilized for laser applications using moderate laser beam powers. Furthermore, the SEA-VIS is economically priced and keeps the product cost under control. more...

 

Enhanced Aluminium Mirror Coating, SEA-NIR Series (NIR)

SEA-NIR mirror has the same basic design as the SEA-VIS series, but the thin film layers of the over coating have been optimized for the near infrared range. more...

 

Protected Aluminium Mirror Coating, SEA-UV Series (UV-VIS-IR)

The aluminum metal coatings of our SEA-UV front surface mirror is protected by a very thin SiO2 layer. This enables a high ultraviolet reflection and, at the same time, a very broadband reflection up to the IR-range. more...

 

Silver Front Surface Mirror Coating, SHP-Series

The SHP is a technical, silver-metal-coated mirror with high reflectivity for polarized and unpolarized light in the visible wavelength range. more...

 

High Reflection Dielectric Front Surface Mirror, SHR-Series (VIS)

The SHR is an optical mirror based on a purely dielectric thin film coating system with a very high reflectivity performance and low loss. The optics are suitable for any application that requires a very high reflection of light energy at a 45°-angle of incidence and for various laser applications. more...

 

High Reflection Front Surface Mirror Coating for polarized light, SHP-D Series

The non-metallic optical thin films of the SHP-D mirror series have been designed for very high reflectivity for S & P polarized and unpolarized light in the visible range over a wide angle of incidence. Due to their strong mechanical resistance, they can for example, replace optical silver mirrors that are not scratch resistant enough for some applications. The SHP-D can also be used to reflect lasers. more...

 

Dielectric Beamsplitter Coating, semitransparent DST-Series

The coatings of our beamsplitters for visible, unpolarized light, allow an almost color neutral division of light and can also be used to split a laser beam. The semitransparent beamsplitters offer a low absorption and are based on all dielectric thin films. They feature an anti-reflective-coating on the backside of the substrate glass to prevent ghost imaging effects. more...

 

Thin-Film Coatings for Lighting Applications

 

Heat Reflecting Hot Mirrors, SIR-Series

Our SIR coatings are highly transparent for visible light and highly reflective for infrared energy up to approx. 1100 nm. The optical thin films of the coating are all dielectric. The SIR materials can be used, for example, as IR-filters in front of CCD-chips, for eye-tracking applications or for the separation of heat and light. Due to the borosilicate glass substrate, the mirrors withstand take a higher thermal load, so they can withstand an increased operation temperature. more...

 

Hot Mirror Coating with extended blocking range, SIR-IR Series

The SIR-IR coatings works in principle similar to that of our SIR heat reflection filters. However, the design focus of the thin-film construction was on a broader infrared blocking range. The transmission of visible light is thereby somewhat lower and the blocking is not as extreme as with the SIR, but the SIR-IR materials represent the best compromise with regard to transparency and broadband blocking in the IR. The SIR-IR-filters are also coated on a borosilicate substrate material. more...

 

Cold Mirrors, SHD-Series (VIS)

Our SHD cold light front side coated mirror is designed for optical lighting applications and allows a very efficient division of visible light and heat energy. The all dielectric coated material provides a very high, visible reflectivity with simultaneous infrared transmittance up to 2500 nm, which helps to remove the heat from an optical system. The SHD can also be an option for combining an infrared light beam or laser with a visible one. The high performance thin films are coated on a temperature resistant substrate material. more...
