Optical Coatings

The most advanced optical coatings, developed by world-leading experts

With over 40 years of experience, Ophir is recognized as a world leader in the development, production and application of advanced optical coatings. Our highly abrasion-resistant, anti-reflective (AR) coatings include several types of HC coatings which provide maximum durability, energy transmission & minimal reflection.

  • PVD thermal evaporation (resistance heating and electron-gun coating)
  • PECVD (plasma-enhanced chemical-vapor deposition)
  • IAD (ion gun)

Innovative technologies for coating success:

  • Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) – Thermal heating and electron gun
  • Ion Assisted Deposition (IAD) – Ion gun
  • Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) for DLC coatings
  • Short radius surfaces coatings

Meeting coating requirements for every component:

  • Anti-reflective(AR), Mirrors and Filters
  • Multispectral coatings
  • High efficacy and high durability coatings
  • DLC (HC) coatings and Low Reflectance HC (LRHC)
  • Laser coatings for 1.064µ and 10.6µ
  • EUV coatings
  • Wide coatings catalog

Unbeatable coating performance, guaranteed:

  • Broadband AR: Ref<0.5% to 0.2% / Tra >98% to 99%
  • Broadband mirror: Ref>98% to 99%
  • Windscreen Wiper Test TS1888 / P 5.4.3 – DLC coatings
