Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSIÂ®), global manufacturer of highly durable thin film optical coatings, introduces a new line of high laser damage threshold (LDT) coatings.
Online PR News – 20-November-2013 – Santa Rosa, CA – Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSIÂ®), global manufacturer of highly durable thin film optical coatings, introduces a new line of high laser damage threshold (LDT) coatings. Designed for use with lasers and other high energy systems, these coatings are ideal for diode, diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS), and gas lasers. DSIâ€™s new products feature laser damage threshold levels as high as 25 MW/cm2.
High laser damage threshold performance is coupled with the companyâ€™s unique, field-proven ability to uniformly coat a wide variety of component geometries, including complex shapes. For example, DSIâ€™s new low insertion loss coatings feature extremely low reflectance with an AR coating performance rating of R< 0.25 percent, according to Dr. Michael Newell, Director of Sales and Marketing.
Dr. Newell reports, â€śDSI has successfully deployed the new line of LDT coatings in a variety of critical applications, with components such as micro lenses, fiber lenses, collimators, beam shaping optics, ball lenses, hemispherical lenses, LED lenses, and even domes and reflectors. Our specialized IsoDynâ„˘ low-pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD) process gives us a unique capability to provide excellent performance and high laser damage thresholds for laser systems. Our customers are excited by the high level of performance our new LDT coatings deliver.â€ť
High damage thresholds are extremely critical for many of todayâ€™s laser applications, including laser cutting, laser machining, micromachining, laser drilling, and laser welding. For more information on DSIâ€™s new high LDT coatings, please visit www.depsci.com or call 866-433-7724.

Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI) â€“ Santa Rosa, CA â€“ www.depsci.com - For over 25 years, Deposition Sciences has produced the most durable optical thin film filter coatings in the industry. DSIâ€™s coating capability ranges from the ultraviolet (UV), through the visible and includes near-infrared (NIR), midwave-infrared (MWIR) and out to the longwave-infrared (LWIR). At the heart of these coating capabilities for optics and other thin film technologies are DSIâ€™s patented MicroDynÂ® reactive sputtering technology enabling superior multilayer thin film coatings, and the company's IsoDynâ„˘ LPCVD method that permits exceptionally conformal optical coatings on complex shapes and sizes.
