ECI deposits precise low loss Anti-Reflection coatings with exceptional environmental stability using Beam Sputtering (IBS) processes.

These IBS coating processes exceed the performance of conventional deposition techniques. Coatings are deposited with high energy that produces films with densely packed surface structures, low optical loss, and superior surface qualities. IBS AR coatings also exhibit high laser damage thresholds. Typical results can be > 40J/cm^2 for a pulsed laser @ 1064nm and > 1GW/cm^2 for a CW laser @ 1064nm. One of the many benefits of IBS AR Coatings is reduced sensitivity to moisture that results in little or no spectral shift. Designs are available for deposition on many types of substrate materials including.

  • LiNbO3
  • KTP
  • LBO
  • YAG
  • TGG
  • Silicon
  • InP
  • Garnet
  • Fused Silica
  • BK7
  • Ultra Thin Wafers
  • Polycarbonate
  • Zeonex®
