Thin film optical coatings

L-3 Applied Optics Center

L-3 Applied Optics Center (AOC), part of L-3 Communications Warrior Systems, announces the completion of coating thirteen large optical elements for a major national telescope. The largest of the elements was over 27 inches in diameter and weighed over 300 pounds.

The anti-reflective and highly reflective thin film optical coatings deposited by AOC on the various elements were specifically designed by Applied Optics Center to enhance the overall performance of the innovative telescope, and to ensure its long-term mission success.

The company will  be exhibiting at the upcoming SPIE Photonics West Exhibition at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, Feb. 4 - 6, 2014.
