Optical Components & Materials

Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI®) announces the design of a wide-angle broadband anti-reflection (BBAR) coating for gimbal windows and detector assemblies. The highly specialized coatings address the needs of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for a highly durable, angle-insensitive (FOV 0-30 degrees) glare-reducing coating on sapphire substrates. The design is band-selective, such that minimum reflectance can be tuned to a particular detector package, while still minimizing visibility (glare) in the photopic spectral sensitivity range of the human eye. The design delivers an average reflectance of approximately 2% between 400-5000 nm.
