Deposition Sciences, Inc. - Antireflection Coatings

AR coatings are the most extensively employed type of optical thin film. By reducing the amount of light reflected from a surface, they improve system throughput, increase contrast, and enhance signal-to-noise ratio in virtually every type of optical system. (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - Notch Filter

Notch filters block a range of wavelengths while transmitting both shorter and longer wavelengths outside of the blocked region. Thus, they provide the exact opposite functionality of a bandpass filter. One of the most common uses of DSI notch filters is in thermal infrared imaging systems. (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - Long/Short Wave Pass Filters

Edge filters, also sometimes called dichroic filters, are coatings that include long wave pass and short wave pass filters. These coatings transmit one range of wavelengths while blocking others. However, they are distinct from bandpass and notch filters in that they either pass wavelengths above (long wave pass) or below (short wave pass) a given single wavelength value. (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - Broad, Narrow, and Dual Bandpass Filters

DSI has extensive experience designing and manufacturing bandpass coatings for use at wavelengths ranging from the ultraviolet through the long-wave infrared.  These include broad bandpass, narrow bandpass and even dual (or multi-wavelength) bandpass designs.  (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - Space qualified thin film coating

SPACE & SATELLITE

DSI’s space qualified thin film coatings and unique Sunshade material enable spaceborne systems to image at higher resolutions and communicate with increased bandwidth. (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - Heat-Resistant Optical Coatings

Sunshade, a thermal control material are utilized on satellite radar domes (radomes) to reject incident solar heat radiation while simultaneously allowing radio frequencies to pass unattenuated. This passively protects satellite electronics from being overheated by the sun without compromising transceiver bandwidth. (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - EVAPORATION TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGES

In a typical evaporative coating chamber, one or more racks hold the substrate material to be coated. The first step in the process is to pump all the air out of the chamber to achieve a very high vacuum (10-6 Torr or better). A succession of coating materials is then evaporated, typically using either resistive heating or electron beam bombardment. (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - Dark Mirror Coatings

Dark mirror coatings absorb incident light, rather than reflecting or transmitting it. Thus, they simultaneously exhibit both the low transmittance of a metal blocking filter and the low reflectance of an antireflection coating. Dark mirrors are typically used to define the aperture of an optical system where control of stray light or elimination of crosstalk is critical. (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - Sunshade Thermal Control Material

Sunshade, a thermal control material are utilized on satellite radar domes (radomes) to reject incident solar heat radiation while simultaneously allowing radio frequencies to pass unattenuated. This passively protects satellite electronics from being overheated by the sun without compromising transceiver bandwidth. (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - AR Coated Ball and Fiber Rod Lenses

DSI produces AR coated ball and fiber rod lenses using our unique IsoDyn® deposition process. This technology directly solves the two major problems encountered when AR coating small, highly curved parts using traditional evaporative or sputtering methods. (read more)

Deposition Sciences, Inc. - Flexible Sputtered Coatings

DSI’s patented MicroDyn batch coating technology is a unique web coating process. Using the MicroDyn process, DSI can create complex coatings using a wide range of materials on a broad selection of substrates. (read more)
