Optical Coatings for Large Optical Elements

L-3 Applied Optics Center designs and manufactures precision optical assemblies for a wide variety of commercial and military applications. They also offer coatings for high-volume production and smaller, custom volumes and prototypes. Recently, L-3 AOC successfully coated 13 large optical elements for a national telescope project.

The largest element was over 27 in. (diam.) and weighed over 300 pounds.  The AR coating and highly reflective thin-film optical coatings were custom-designed to enhance performance and ensure the long-term mission success.
