  1. Optical Thin Film Coatings Provide Safer Flight Conditions

    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. 

  2. Optical Components For SWIR Imaging

    This application note provides information on the benefits of SWIR imaging in harsh or low-light level conditions, and PG&O's capabilities in manufacturing optical components for SWIR imaging.

  3. Finished Infrared Optics White Paper

    PG&O finished infrared (IR) optics are designed for a wide range of applications, including biomedical, industrial, military/defense, homeland security, surveillance systems, automotive, fire control, lasers, night vision, and more. These new optics operate from 0.75 µm, the near-infrared (NIR), out to 15 µm, the longwave-infrared (LWIR) spectrum.

  4. Optical Monitoring System Improves Thin-Film Coating Accuracy

    In the past, a thin-film design software was used to help develop the coating, but the real challenge was in actually replicating the design thickness and the material indexes inside the coating chamber, without any errors. 

  5. Datasheet: Precision Optics

    PG&O’s Precision Optical Fabrication facility specializes in Plano optical components. Our many years of industry experience enable us to interact with your engineers in order to produce needed components rapidly -- without sacrificing quality or cost-effectiveness.

  6. Datasheet: Beam Splitters

    Our plate beamsplitters are designed to split a beam of light into separate paths. The percentages of transmission, reflection and wavelength region can vary according to your application. The first surface is an all dielectric coating. The second surface is generally antireflection coated to minimize secondary reflections and ghosting. We can optimize your coating to meet your specification (R/T ratio, angle of incidence and wave length).

  7. Datasheet: Antireflection Coatings

    PG&O offers a full range of anti-reflection coatings from 350nm to 1700nm. We have standard broadbands, V-Coatings, and double V-Coatings matched to a variety of substrates, as well as single layer MgF2. All can be shifted to your wavelength and angle requirements.

  8. Datasheet: Cold Mirrors

    Cold mirrors are a special dichroic filter that reflects the visible energy and transmits the infrared energy. Here are some of our cold mirrors with broader reflectance bandwidths than our standard CMP product. These mirrors were designed for specific applications where the cutoff slopes needed to be at different wavelengths. While these mirrors are designed for 45° and for average polarization, we can design for your angle requirements.

  9. Datasheet: Metal Coatings

    PG&O offers a full range of metal coatings including aluminum, chromium, silver, gold and inconel just to name a few. Metal coatings are often used in systems where a very broadband reflector is necessary. These coatings meet or exceed all mil-specs for coatings. Below are two examples of our many metallic coatings. We can customize our coatings to meet your exact requirements.

  10. Datasheet: ITO Coating

    PG&O is an industry leader as a supplier of optics and thin film coating. Our ITO Coating is an addition to our currently existing optical product offering.
