Protecting Silicon, Germanium and Chalcogenide Windows and Lenses with Intlvac Thin Film’s DLC Machine
High refractive index materials used for infrared imaging are easily scratched and abraded by the environment. Additionally, a protective coating applied to these soft surfaces can also act as an anti-reflective coating, hugely improving the total IR light being transmitted through the optic.
Our latest 3rd Generation machine is able to coat large optics easily, uniformly, without rotation, and without pin holes.
During our presentation we will show some of the results achieved with a variety of source gas inputs in our Plasma Vapor Deposition system.
