Ensure Success in Your Optical Coating Project
Service Detail from Cascade Optical Corp.
There are many variables and factors that can impact optical coating results. Make sure you review this list before seeking a reliable provider to coat your optics.
Expertise Cascade Optical Corp. has a highly qualified staff of research scientists and engineers ready to develop your desired optical output down to the subcomponent level, as well as assist you with your entire optical train
Substrate cleanliness: With the assistance of a state of the art ultrasonic cleaning line and greater than 100 x magnification we are able to remove particulates down to the submicron level. Our clean rooms are actively monitored as a class 100 ppm. The end result is a clean and pristine optical element that is ready for the absolute best possible adhesion
Thin Film Deposition Process: Our proprietary deposition process with monitored low contamination levels produces a highly dense thin film structure with optimal low stress, absorption, and scatter. This yields the best possible solution for transmission and reflection for high laser damage threshold and severe abrasion requirements. Year after year, Cascade Optical has created seemingly impossible custom thin film interference filters which have been unsurpassed by our competition
Glass Fabrication: Cascade Optical Corporation's precision glass fabrication department specializes in plano optics. Our ability to measure flatness before and after coating gives us an edge in the market place
Quality Control: Our engineer headed staff of quality assurance inspectors observe optics with military standard inspection stations utilizing both florescent and incandescent illumination. Our QA team keeps a well-documented log of all defects. If the optical substrate is supplied by the customer, details of the defects are immediately relayed upon discovery
Delivery: We are committed to on time delivery and maintaining informative up to date friendly communication with our customers. Throughput can be achieved within 24 hours
