Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O®) is an industry leader in complete turnkey optical solutions for operation in the 0.2 µm (UV) to 10 µm (IR) spectrum. We provide precision and commercial components, thin film coatings, and complete fabrication services. Our specialized optical thin film coatings operate in a wide wavelength range on optics ranging in size from 0.059 inches to 30 inches diameter.
With our extensive in-house glass materials and coated substrates inventory, we offer unparalleled fast service on a wide variety of optical materials, including mirrors, windows, micro sheets, and glass. We are expert in glass fabrication and assembled optics ranging from square, rectangular, and circular parts to sophisticated and complex shapes for industries such as military/defense, biophotonics, life sciences, avionics, solar, digital cinema, imaging, displays, homeland security, medical, and more.
Ask about our new finished infrared optics and our highly durable sapphire optics for mission-critical applications. We also provide a unique re-polishing service that can salvage previously fabricated thin-film optics. This proprietary process can save an optics manufacturer time and money by replacing a dielectric coating that has been damaged during the manufacturing process or one that does not meet specifications.
Since 1985, PG&O has been developing specialized solutions for precision and commercial applications globally. From our 18,000 sq. ft. optical manufacturing facility in Santa Ana, California, we deliver a broad array of products from flats, prisms, beamsplitters, to precision thin film coatings, including dichroic, dielectric, and metal.
PG&O's quality control (QC) system utilizes the fundamentals of MIL-I-45208A as well as the optical manufacturing disciplines of MIL-PRF-13830B. We are fully equipped to handle many types of custom optics, from prototype through high-volume production. Our quality system is compliant with ISO 9002; we maintain these and other QC principles to meet and/or exceed customer requirements.
Privately-held, we emphasize highest quality, durability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness to meet our customer's strictest deadlines, product specifications, and budgets. Our friendly executive team and staff of engineering experts are available to answer your questions about precision thin film coatings, glass fabrication, and custom or commercial optical solutions.

Precision Glass & Optics, announces the successful installation of a new optical monitoring system, the SL-2012A SpectraLock from Eddy Company. The advanced system provides in-situ optical monitoring and rate control to produce single and multi-layered thin films with ultra-precision and accuracy.
Precision Glass & Optics recently announced the customization of two thin film optical components for a high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) accessory. They developed the dielectric cold mirror and cylindrical prism mirror for the Real Eye Nano; an advanced visual presentation and eye-tracking system constructed of glass and plastic with a reduced size for operation in confined MRI spaces.
PG&O introduces new IR optical products and capabilities at Photonics West 2019. These new materials are composed of finished infrared optical components and current with potential applications in biomedical, night vision, military/defense, etc. markets.
This year at Photonics West, Dan Bukaty Jr. with PG&O discussed his company’s thin film coating capabilities. Watch the video to learn about their ability to coat large optics (up to 600mm in diameter), as well as a new system that allows them to monitor optical coatings in real-time, which ensures individual layer index accuracy, and the ability to measure layer thickness down to 1nm.
This year at Photonics West, Dan Bukaty with PG&O (Precision Glass & Optics) talked to us about how over 100 years of collective engineering experience at his organization has been leveraged to deliver high performance optics without breaking the bank.
At 2016’s Photonics West exhibition, Dan Bukaty talked to us about Precision Glass & Optics’ (PG&O) view on partnering with their customers.
BOROFLOAT®, the world’s first borosilicate glass by SCHOTT, has become one of the most influential specialty glass materials with its thermal stability, superior surface quality, and remarkably high transmission for utilization in research applications such as its implementation in the Hobby Eberly Telescope.
Specialized thin film optical coatings are currently being designed into customized displays that serve to modify the viewing angle and eliminate unwanted stray light that would otherwise distract the pilot(s) and crew in commercial and military aircraft cockpits.
Dan Bukaty Jr., President of Precision Glass & Optics discusses why a flexible approach to material selection in the manufacturing process is important to help protect optics manufacturing lead times against material shortages.
Precision Glass & Optics, a global leader in optical manufacturing, precision thin-film coatings, and complete optical solutions, introduces Opal Diffusers. The new product is made from opal glass and can be polished to any thickness and/or bonded to any glass substrate.
In this case study, we look at the challenge of fabricating a broadband, non-polarizing cube beamsplitter for a 3D visual application.
