IR Lenses With DLC From EMF & Spectral Systems

25 Apr 2023

Collaboration makes us all stronger.

Diamond-turned IR lenses from Spectral Systems, coated with a high transmission Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) protective coating for a longer life is only one example of how our expanded team works together.

This team’s experience and equipment allow us to manufacture IR products to very demanding and precise tolerances backed by quality measurements. Working with crystalline materials and metal mirrors, Spectral first diamond-turns and polishes, then EMF addresses the final coating for the best performance and durability.

EMF offers DLC coatings for exceptional durability, added coating hardness, high IR transmission, and ideal for optical applications. With our proprietary DLC chamber, we are able to avoid non-uniform thickness while controlling adhesion.

DLC is ideal for coating Germanium, Silicon, Zinc Sulfide, Zinc Selenide, as well as Chalcogenides. Our PE-CVD process, combined with a unique coating geometry, virtually eliminates pinholes and decreases all processing defects.

Spectral Systems is a world leader in designing and manufacturing IR optical components from the NIR to Far IR. We appreciate material selection, purity, precision, polishing and coatings required to reach the highest optical performance for your application. No other optical manufacturer understands and specializes in covering the entire infrared spectrum like our team. We have two sites - Hopewell Junction, NY and Jaffrey, NH to better serve your complete IR needs.

EMF offers innovative high-volume and large-format optical coating solutions on glass, metal, ceramic, polymers and IR substrates. As the Large Optics Division of Omega Optical Holdings, EMF coats an incredible variety of optics that support laser communications technology. With the main offices and manufacturing located in Ithaca, NY, EMF also has a second manufacturing site in Rochester, NY.
