Optical Coatings

UQG optical coating service provides a broad range of coating options that are applied to our range of optical components and glasses. The range of coatings available includes the UV to IR region. 

Anti reflection coatings

Anti reflection coatings are used to improve the transmission of the transmitted light and improve the contrast of the image. An uncoated glass surface has surface reflection of approximately 4% per surface, AR coating will reduce this to as low as 0.20%.

Options (400-700nm)

  • Single layer MgF2 R= < 1.5% per side
  • Multi layer R= < 0.5%
  • V Coat R= < 0.25% @ specified wavelength
  • Dual wavelength (eg. 532nm + 633nm)

AR coatings for the UV (eg. 254nm) and IR (eg. 1064nm).
