Optical Coatings

The ability to manufacture custom band pass coatings from the 250nm to 5000nm enables Surface Optics to produce a wide variety of filters:

  • Edge Filters
  • Beam Splitters
  • Anti-Reflection Designs (Multiple Bands)
  • Polarization Filters
  • Cold and Hot Mirrors
  • Enhanced Metal Coatings
