In this overview you will find a summary of our standard optical thin film coatings. The deposition of these coated materials takes place at regular intervals, to guarantee best possible availability even for parts with custom dimensions. Please succeed to the links below to view the data-sheets of the respective standard thin-film coated:


Transparent Optical Coatings


ITO-Coatings on Glass


Our CEC materials contain a large number of electrically conductive and translucent indium-tin-oxide thin film coatings on high-quality glass substrate materials. Also numerous exotic substrates, for example alkali-free glass, thin glass or quartz glass with ITO-coating are constantly available. more...


Broadband Anti-Reflection Coatings

ARC-Series (VIS)

Our ARC coatings are efficient, optical multi-layer antireflection thin film coatings that drastically reduce reflections from glass surfaces and suppress double images. They can significantly increase light transmission. more...


Front Surface Mirrors


Enhanced Aluminium

SEA-VIS Series (VIS)

The SEA-VIS optical mirrors have an aluminum metal coating with dielectric overcoatings optimized for the visible area. more...


Enhanced Aluminium

SEA-NIR Series (NIR)

SEA-NIR mirrors have the same basic design as the SEA-VIS series, but the dielectric films on top of the metal thin film coating have been optimized for near infrared wavelengths. more...


Protected Aluminium


Our SEA-UV aluminum coated mirrors are coated with a very thin SiO2 protective layer. This results in a high ultraviolet reflection and, at the same time, a very broadband reflectivity up to the IR. more...


Silver Front Surface Mirrors


The SHP is a technical, silver metal coated optical mirror with a strong reflection for polarized and unpolarized light in the visible wavelength range. more...


Dielectric Mirrors

SHR-Series (VIS)

The SHR series are technical front surface mirrors with very high visible reflectivity, based on a dielectric thin film layer system. They are suitable for all applications requiring a very high reflection at an angle of incidence of 45°. more...


Dielectric Mirrors for polarized light

SHP-D Series

The dielectric front surface mirrors of our SHP-D series have been designed for very high reflection for both, S & P polarized and unpolarized light for visible wavelengths and over a wide range of angles of incidence. more...


Dielectric Beamsplitters


Our beamsplitters for visible, unpolarized light allow a largely neutral division of light beams or of laser beam radiation. The semi-transparent mirrors are anti-reflective on the back to avoid double images. more...



Coatings for Lighting Applications


Hot Mirrors


Our dielectric SIR coatings are highly transparent for visible light and highly reflective for infrared radiation up to approx. 1100 nm. These thin film coatings are coated on a temperature resistant borosilicate glass substrate. more...


Heat Reflection Filters

SIR-IR Series

The SIR-IR coating works in principle similar to that of our SIR hot mirror. However, the focus was on a more broadband infrared energy blocking range. more...


Cold Mirrors

SHD-Series (VIS)

Our SHD cold light surface mirrors for lighting systems allow a very efficient separation of usable light and heat. The dielectric mirror coating provides a very high, visible reflection with simultaneous infrared transmittance up to 2500 nm.. more...



Note: The manufacturing of optics with custom dimensions according to your specifications, based on the thin-films listed above, usually can be done within extraordinarily short delivery times. For optics 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! You can take advantage of our advanced 48h-Express Service, which is 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 material, the shape of the optics and on additional machining steps required to process it. With our quotation, you always get a reliable information on the delivery time.

If you do not find the optical thin film coating material you are looking for, just request your customized coating services here or contact us. We offer advanced custom deposition techniques and we have precision manufacturing capabilities for high performance thin-films based on almost any type of precision glass substrate material. We have the deposition process technology to control transmissivity, cut-on and cut-off points as well as reflection of almost any kind of optical thin film coating for any wavelength up to 2500 nm within certain physical limits.
