Optical antireflection-Coatings

„Antireflective coating enhances performance!“
 
Each beam of light generates a back reflection during the transition from one into another medium. Antireflective coatings are used to minimize effects like loss of power and the appearance of dangerous hot spots caused by the back reflection.


Antireflective coatings (short AR-coating) are used in a variety in optics as they reduce the reflection of  glass surfaces. The increased light transmission and a reduction of aberrations are the main advantages.

Transmission measurments

The spectral transmission tests are made i.a. in cooperation with the Laserzentrum Hannover.

Coating range

All AR-Coatings can be offered with a wavelength range between 200-3000nm. Due to different coating materials and designs we are able to influence the broad band.
