Ocean Thin Films now provides its patented PixelTec patterned optical coating process for high-precision bandpass filters, opening up new possibilities for application-specific cameras. The extended capability enables optical devices to be micro-patterned with multiple narrow-band filters, creating even greater contrast and resolution for multispectral applications from cellular microscopy to factory vision systems.
By combining state-of-the art sputtered coating expertise with exclusive microlithography technology, PixelTec delivers highly accurate geometric and spectral performance across the ultraviolet (UV), visible and near – short wave infrared ranges (NIR – SWIR). The pioneer in lithographic patterning of optical coatings, Ocean Thin Films continues to advance this technology – with more than 2 million precision patterned optics delivered. PixelTec optical coatings are increasingly used for purpose-fit performance in a multitude of medical, defence and industrial applications, enabling more compact, robust and cost-effective devices.
The company’s high-volume production capabilities help OEM’s deliver products to the market faster.
