Every application is unique and deserves an optical coating just as unique. Penn Optical Coatings offers extensive coating capabilities. Give us your specifications below and we’ll get back to you with solutions.
Optical performance is determined by your application’s requirements. This sometimes results in the need for custom thin film optical coatings. Penn Optical Coatings has the experience and process knowledge to engineer and manufacture a broad range of specialty coatings. In addition to requiring some customization, specialty coatings may also require novel concepts in the design, engineering, or process control stages to achieve a desired performance. This may include coating special materials, unique substrate dimensions, and optical properties. Tell us what you need—we’ll make it.
OD 0.3-OD 0.8
Our greatest resource is our experience. The Penn Optical Coatings team works closely with you to ensure the optimal result for your application.
Optical design software packages like OptiLayer and TF Calc are quite sophisticated, offering multiple optimization routines and production troubleshooting features. Using them requires a depth of experience in the physics behind the formula and hands-on knowledge of design for manufacturability. Determining the right process to achieve consistent quality and throughput is a significant factor in product cost and performance.
Penn Optical Coatings specially crafts filters and optical coatings from the UV to the IR for optics from 1 millimeter to 1 meter. Our expertise in silver coatings includes a new formulation proven to improve durability.
