Evaporated Coatings, Inc. (ECI), a leading provider of thin film optical coatings, announced the addition of a new line of High Laser Damage Threshold (LDT) optical coatings. Both highly reflective (HR) and anti-reflective (AR) optical coatings are manufactured to withstand laser damages up to 40 J/cm2 @ 20 ns pulse width at 1064nm. ECI also offers high power laser damage threshold coatings for wavelengths from 300nm to 2500nm.
Robert Schaffer, President of ECI, commented, “Our strategy is to continue to develop and produce high quality optical coatings with low optical loss and superior laser damage resistance properties. The successful implementation of a new clean room area, progressive coating equipment, careful selection of thin film materials and ECI’s expertise in optical coatings deposition technology combines to consistently achieve high damage threshold optical coatings.”
