Exciting New Challenges
We’ve continued to develop our capabilities at Plasma Optik. Our primary goal is enhancing our ability to meet challenging CW, nanosecond and femtosecond laser damage specifications. We have a number of projects ongoing, exploring the limits of our technology to manufacture these challenging coatings. Additional bandwidth has been allocated to enhancing our ability to meet challenging optical specifications.
Make sure to mark your calendar for the SPIE laser damage Conference happening in Rochester, NY September 18-21st. Plasma Optik has entered and submitted coated optics for the 1064nm CW laser damage competition. Laser damage in the CW regime is primarily thermally driven. We expect our fully dense Ion Beam sputtered coatings to perform extremely well under these high fluence conditions. We’re very excited to see the results and we are looking forward to sharing our performance with you once published.
Enhancing the capability of our optical monitor system has been another challenge. Producing bandpass filters with full range blocking is a tall order requiring nanometer precision on layer termination on hundreds of consecutive layers. We have managed to successfully navigate the challenges associated with this effort and have produced an example filter with wide blocking range along with a passband with average transmission of 92.5%.

We Want To Help Foster Your Success
Our goal at Plasma Optik is to manufacture high quality coatings to address some of the most significant optical challenges. We know there is always a need for R&D projects, and we are here to help you get them done. Sadly, many innovative ideas come to a halt when R&D projects are delayed. That is where we come in.
Please let our Sales team know if you have a demand for optical coatings for a small R&D project or one-off concept design that is of interest. Talk to us about your requirements and we’ll do all we can to help meet or exceed your expectations. You can email Jim Kraus to set up a time to discuss your thin film process needs, or call Plasma Optik at 970-786-6218.
