New volume coating capability added to the SIRRUS™ plasma deposition platform, and new paper on filters for non-linear optical systems.
June 1, 2016
Dear Friends, Colleagues and Customers of Alluxa,
I'm pleased to announce our latest addition to the SIRRUS™ Plasma Deposition family, affectionately called the "Warthog" by our team.
The Warthog is essentially a scaled up version of our precision SIRRUS - Ultra platform, but now capable of running up to twenty five 250mm substrates at a time, which makes it the highest volume coating platform in the industry. Although it won't possess the industry leading sub-nm precision of the SIRRUS - Ultra process, it will still be capable of many of the mid-market filter requirements, such as environmentally stable dielectric mirrors, simple dichroics, IR-cut, and bandpass. Coatings incorporating transparent conductive oxides (TCO) are also planned. The Warthog will move to production status in Q3 of this year.
Check out our new white paper, "Thin-Film Optical Components for Use in Non-Linear Optical Systems", written by our Applications Engineering team, spearheaded by Alannah Johansen, which discusses issues arising with thin films in fast pulsed laser systems. An example of a wide band mirror with flat dispersion response is below.
