OPTICAL COATINGS

Optical Coatings

Many lenses are offered with optical coatings for increased performance in the Ultraviolet (UV), visible, or Infrared (IR) spectrums. IRD is poised to serve all your coating needs. We have the ability to offer quick-turn basic coatings in-house. Our complete offerings run from basic Mgf2 coatings to the incredibly intricate multiple-stack coatings, metallization and more. IRD offers HLDT AR and mirror coatings, ultra-high reflective mirror coatings, beam splitters, notch, BBAR and many more. Bring us your challenges, and let’s work together to find a solution!
