  1. Article: Optical Thin Film Coatings Provide Safer Flight Conditions
    7/19/2016

    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
    7/5/2016

    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. Datasheet: Precision Optics
    6/21/2016

    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.

  4. Datasheet: Beam Splitters
    6/21/2016

    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).

  5. Datasheet: Antireflection Coatings
    6/21/2016

    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.

  6. Datasheet: Cold Mirrors
    6/21/2016

    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.

  7. Datasheet: Metal Coatings
    6/21/2016

    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.

  8. Datasheet: ITO Coating
    6/16/2016

    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.

  9. Datasheet: Maximum Reflectors
    6/16/2016

    Maximum reflectors are all dielectric coatings that achieve high reflectance over a relatively narrow bandwidth and generally at a particular angle. We can design a coating for just about any angle requirement. Our extended Max R’s have a much greater bandwidth and can be designed for your angle requirements.

  10. BOROFLOAT & Optical Mirrors: A Union of Inspiration & Quality
    6/19/2015

    This white paper introduces BOROFLOAT, the world’s first borosilicate glass by SCHOTT, explains how it is used in the Hobby Eberly Telescope (HET), and describes its exceptional optical and thermal properties.
