Grauling Research, Inc. announced the IR-ISE™ (Infrared - Improved Sensor Efficiency - U.S. Patent Pending), an improved photoconductive infrared sensor coating developed with revolutionary technology. The new IR thin-film coating greatly enhances performance and improves efficiency of infrared sensors; in many applications the coating also seals and protects the device, eliminating the need for glass encapsulation.
Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI®), global manufacturer of highly durable thin film optical coatings, announces the expanded family of optical thin film coatings including antireflection (AR) coatings, hot and cold mirrors, front-surface mirrors, and IR coatings for commercial and industrial applications.
Abrisa Technologies, a leading supplier of high performance flat glass for the display industry can now screen print on 80 inch diagonal soda lime or low iron float glass for a wide variety of applications including digital signage, ruggedized outdoor displays, and monitors.
