IBS (Ion Beam Sputtering) Coated Optics achieve the highest performance possible for demanding laser optics applications. IBS technology enables the manufacturing of IBS laser line mirrors with reflectance above 99.99% and high laser damage thresholds, IBS laser line lenses and IBS laser line windows with low-loss anti-reflection coatings, and IBS laser line filters with steep transitions capable of withstanding high laser energy. The IBS coatings on these optics feature dense, non-porous, homogenous coating layers creating drift-free, temperature insensitive performance. IBS Coated Optics are virtually free of surface defects, resulting in the lowest possible absorption and scatter of any coating process.
Edmund Optics has precision IBS coating capabilities with our industry leading Veeco SPECTOR® Ion Beam Sputtering System located onsite. The SPECTOR platform offers exceptional layer thickness control and enhanced process stability, resulting in high reproducibility of coating batches and consistent coating performance within design parameters.
