Unique industry focus on micro-patterning capabilities
PIXELTEQ micro-patterned optical coatings combine patented microlithography expertise with state-of-the-art coating technology. The company’s micro-patterned filters help create compact and cost-effective optical devices for use in biomedical, security and defense, aerospace, precision agriculture and machine vision applications.
PIXELTEQ’s technology enables patterning of multiple dielectric, metal and color gel filter array coatings on a single substrate. Standardized processes are in place for patterning on glass and semiconductor wafers, which optimize PIXELTEQ’s processes to customer requirements and reduce time-to-market. The company’s capabilities can meet requirements from high accuracy, low volume devices to high volume consumer-type products.
“Our proprietary thin film coating processes were perfected over decades of experience,” said PIXELTEQ VP Marketing and Sales, Marco Snikkers. “To the best of our knowledge, we are the only photonics company that focuses solely on micro-patterning technology.”
Since completing a multi-million dollar expansion and upgrade to its manufacturing facilities last year, PIXELTEQ has doubled its output of micro-patterned optical filters.
