Innovations in thin-film coatings and process equipment for polymer optics (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Dane Clark

Paper Abstract

With the continued growth in demand for precision polymer optics across a broad range of industries, markets, and product applications, so too has the demand increased for highly performing optical coatings for these polymer lenses. Aside from rigorous optical specifications, coatings on polymers must also exhibit desirable mechanical properties that may include significant abrasion resistance, adherence, and environmental stability. Special surface characteristics such as hydrophobicity, oleophobicity, anti-static properties, and general ease of cleaning properties for the coating stack are highly desirable attributes. Satisloh is a global leader in the PVD equipment space for successfully processing optical coatings on precision polymer optics. Details will be shared on the unique Satisloh equipment attributes, ancillary equipment and technologies, coating process design considerations, and special optical coating layer attributes. The combination of these technical considerations is the basis for success in developing and processing premium quality thin-film coatings for precision polymer optical lenses. Attend this commercial paper presentation for more details on how Satisloh can assist your company to succeed with performance coatings for plastic optics.
