Within the 3 to 5 micron and the 8 to 12 micron infrared (IR) spectral regions, DSI has developed a variety of coating types. These include AR (antireflection), high reflectors, beam splitters, dichroic coatings and band pass filters. These infrared optical coatings are stable, extremely durable, and meet or surpass the strict standards of most military applications, including missile seeker head requirements.

DSI's specialized coating processes allow the various thin film coatings to be applied onto many diverse substrates. Substrate materials include sapphire, silicon, germanium, zinc sulfide, zinc selenide, assorted metals and ceramics, as well as most glass types compatible with the extended infrared (IR) spectral region.

In addition to manufacturing IR coatings, DSI has an extensive array of in-house test and measurement capabilities. The facility is DoD accredited and can provide spectral measurement testing (including cryogenic), environmental and physical testing, allowing DSI to rigorously characterize and test the thin film filters per customer specifications.

DSI's proprietary MicroDyn?? sputtering technology yields high performance, highly durable optical coatings. The precision, uniform coatings are extremely stable over temperature and humidity changes, meeting or exceeding many of the established military and aerospace standards.
