Optical Coatings

Optical coatings are a critical portion of the finished optical components or assembly. Accurate optical coating design and production can mean the difference between the component failing in the field or lasting for the intended lifetime of the project. Edmund Optics has extensive coating capabilities, and expertise in producing coatings for life science applications and medical devices, harsh environment imaging assemblies, and applications throughout the ultraviolet (UV), visible (VIS), and infrared (IR) spectral regions. All optics are meticulously cleaned, coated, and inspected in a clean room environment, and subjected to the environmental, thermal, and durability requirements specified by our customers.

  • Internal volume coating capabilities from 248nm to > 40μm
  • Custom coating design from UV to LWIR spectral ranges
  • Well-established partners covering selective UV ranges from 4,1nm to 157nm
  • Competitive volume pricing
  • Anti-reflective, highly-reflective, filter, polarizing, beamsplitter, and metallic designs
  • High laser damage threshold (LDT) and ultrafast laser coatings

State-of-the-Art Metrology

Metrology is an essential step when delivering reliable customized products. If you can measure it, you can make it. We at Edmund Optics combine a wide range of metrology options and tools which can be used specifically for your needs, individually or in combination – your requirements define our process.
