Paper Abstract

Optical thin films which are electrically conductive, (EC), are finding increasing use in infrared instruments. This paper describes three application examples in which three different functions are performed by the EC coating. One example describes an electro-magnetic shielding application of an EC coating on IR sensor windows. Example two, discusses a deicing/defogging application on the XM-1 tank laser (1.06 μm) range finder window. The third example describes an unusual EC coating application as a 655 nm/10.6 μm beamsplitter for an advanced CO2 laser range finder system.
