Veluminum™ Panels feature engineered anodized aluminum surfaces with a surface morphology that reduces reflectivity of incident light. The Veluminum treated surfaces have high absorbance of visible light and high durability compared to carbon nanotube deposition. This technology can be applied to complex geometries and interior surfaces, such as extension tubes or lens barrels to reduce stray light. Veluminum Panels can be used as beam dumps with low power visible lasers or to prototype performance for use of the technology in custom optical assemblies.
Note: While more durable than other blackening technologies, the Veluminum treated surfaces are sensitive to mechanical contact. Avoid touching these surfaces to ensure best performance.
