We provide full coating design and verification services in-house. Optical coatings are composed of thin layers of materials including oxides, metals, and rare earth elements designed to enhance the transmission, reflection, or polarization properties of an optical component. The performance of an optical coating is dependent on the process cleanliness, number of layers, layer thickness, and the refractive index difference between layers. At Clear Align we bring an understanding of optical coating theory, material science and manufacturing methodology. Let us design a coating to meet your program’s needs.
Automated Cleaning Operations
Clear Align begins with automated ultrasonic cleaning that provides a meticulously surface for optical coatings. This process is critical to adhesion and long-term reliability.
