Jan. 29, 2014 - PRLog -- Dallas, TX – L-3 Applied Optics Center (www.L-3com.com/aoc), part of L-3 Communications  Warrior Systems, has developed a new line of enhanced, protected gold optical coatings for deposition on large-format, high-value substrates.  The gold thin-film coatings are ideal for deposition on lightweight optical elements for applications where weight and performance are critical design factors, such as terrestrial and airborne imaging systems.

L-3 AOC offers the enhanced gold coatings on optical elements in excess of

350 mm in diameter. Other AOC products in development include highly-specialized reflective metalized films such as protected silver, aluminum, silicon carbide, and a wide range of metal oxides for commercial and military applications.

AOC’s new family of reflective coatings can be designed in accordance with specific customer requirements to maximize wavelength-specific performance, from the deep ultraviolet (UV) to the far infrared (IR). In addition, these metallic coatings are designed in accordance with stringent customer requirements for durability and environmental stability.

Jim Hooker, Director of Business Development for L-3 Communications Applied Optics Center, notes, “We are proud to announce the introduction of this extremely challenging, enhanced gold coating for large-format, strategic imaging applications.  This is yet another addition to our increasingly broad line of high-value, precise and highly specialized thin-films for critical commercial and military applications, where optical performance and durability are key design parameters.”

Applied Optics Center designs and manufactures a broad array of reflective metalized films for applications where high reflectance and superior durability are required.  For more information about AOC’s highly-reflective, large-optical-metallic coating capabilities, please visit  L-3 AOC’s Photonics West booth # 2401 at the Moscone Center, San Francisco,  Feb. 4 - 6, 2014, or visit:  www.L-3com.com/aoc.
