Cascade Optical Corp. - Thin Film Deposition - A Concise Chronology

We may think that Thin Film Deposition is a 20th century technology, but its roots extend much further into the past. Used for coating architectural glass to manipulating light and heat transmission, to the design of absorber layers for solar cells to magnetic thin films for electronic data storage - learn more (read more)

Cascade Optical Corp. - Technical Article: Optical Component Coatings

Deposit thin layers of metallic or dielectric material on a lens, mirror or other optical device, and what’s left is a thin-film optical coating. Such coatings are applied to control transmission or reflection properties through the mechanism of optical interference. Many types are available for specific applications and optical equipment.

Cascade Optical Corp. - HOT & COLD MIRRORS (SWP/LWP)

Hot and cold mirrors are special cases of short and long wave pass filters, respectively. Typical hot mirror reflects wavelengths longer than 700 nm up to 1100 nm and transmits spectrum below 600 nm. In this case 650 nm is usually selected as a half-maximum T point, cut-on point is 600 nm, and 700 nm is cut-off point. (read more)

Cascade Optical Corp. - CUBE BEAMSPLITTERS by CASCADE OPTICAL

Beamsplitters are made either in plate or cube form. Cube beamsplitter is usually made of two right angle prisms, where hypo of one prism is coated with splitting coating. (read more)

Cascade Optical Corp. - PLATE BEAM SPLITTERS

The transparency range of optical cements used to assemble cube beamsplitters limits their spectral application, roughly to between 200 nm and at the best up to 3000 nm. Plate beamsplitters do not require assembly and their applications are only limited by the transparency of the selected substrate (read more)
