L-3 Applied Optics Center’s coating chambers are volumetrically eight times larger than most competitive chambers. This gives them an advantage in the application of coatings on high-volume custom optics, or coating very large optics (up to 24 inches in diameter).
L-3 offers a variety of deposition processes and their wavelength region spans from the visible to the far infrared (300nm to 14 microns). They routinely manufacture multiple notch designs containing over 250+ discrete layers, and their previously mentioned large-capacity chambers enable fewer overall coatings runs. This translates into shorter lead times and competitive pricing.
