DSI Presents Extensive Test & Measurement Capabilities for Optical Coatings for Military & Aerospace Applications

Published on 2011-04-20. Author : SpecialChem

SANTA ROSA, CA -- Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI®), manufacturer of durable thin film optical coatings, offers extensive test and measurement capabilities for a wide array of highly specialized optical coatings for military and aerospace applications. DSI's Special Products Group (SPG) participates at all levels of product development, from engineering, to prototyping, to full-scale production, based on customer specifications. The company's quality testing capabilities include measurement of in-house produced materials as well as independent verification of external coated samples for vendor/supplier surveillance, process analysis, and qualification testing.

SPG's spectral measurement capabilities include testing spectral ranges from 0.190 microns to 50 microns. Reflectance and transmittance tests range from near normal to 45 degrees and cryogenic measurements can be characterized from ambient to < 10="" kelvin.="" polarized="" measurements="" (s&p)="" are="" also="" available,="" if="" needed,="" and="" hemispherical="" transmittance="" and="" reflectance="" tests="" measure="" from="" 0.190="" microns="" to="" 2.5="" microns.="" environmental="" testing="" is="" performed="" to="" mil-c-48497="" and="" mil-f-48616="" standards.="">

DSI's Special Products Group can perform tests for humidity, salt fog, abrasion, temperature cycle, adhesion, solubility and cleanability. Physical test and measurements available include flatness/reflected wavefront error, surface quality characterization (e.g. scratch/dig, scatter, etc.), surface resistivity, and dimensional verification.

About DSI

For over 25 years, Deposition Sciences has produced the most durable optical thin film filter coatings in the industry. DSI's coating capability ranges from the ultraviolet (UV), through the visible and includes nearinfrared (NIR), midwave-infrared (MWIR) and out to the longwave-infrared (LWIR). At the heart of these capabilities is DSI's patented MicroDyn® reactive sputtering technology enabling superior multilayer thin film coatings for optics and other thin film technologies.
