Multifunctional low defect AR coatings

Optics Balzers has released a range of multifunctional low defect AR coatings, infrared blocking filters and index matched ITO coatings.

Combined with chrome apertures, solderable frames or B-stage epoxy frames for MEMS, CCD sensors, these devices produce a high resolution for advanced imaging sensors for scientific and industrial applications.

Depending on the specific requirements, wet etching, reactive ion etching or microlithography technology are applied. Patterned CMY wheels, flags, animation wheels and gobos manufactured by microlithography, laser ablation or wet etching ensure the best effects and purest colour mixing in moving heads for entertainment and studio lighting.

High resolution patterned dichroic colour filters also enable miniaturisation of sensors and detectors including reduction of the components required for optical systems.
