DSI’s new process creates sputtered films that feature increased abrasion resistance relative to evaporated films and are much more economical to produce in higher volumes. Because of the intrinsically low temperature of the sputtering process, the coatings are compatible with photoresists, enabling the filters to be patterned using standard photolithographic techniques.
Highly durable, optical thin film coatings from DSI include multilayer thin films for industrial, commercial, biomedical, test & measurement, solar, military, defense and aerospace applications. For more information, please go to: www.depsci.com.
