Broadband AR Coating on Germanium

Broadband AR Coating on Germanium

From Andover

Andover produces a non-radioactive dielectric multilayer coating designed to reduce the reflection of Germanium substrates in the infrared. Reflection is reduced from 36% per surface to less than 1% per surface.

Constructed of hard, durable first-surface dielectric coatings on optical-quality germanium substrates, these filters will withstand cleaning and handling associated with any high-quality optical component.

For your convenience and economy, we offer the filters in two standard sizes: 25 mm and 50 mm dia. However, we can produce custom sizes and shapes, as well as custom optical characteristics. Contact our expert on the right for a quotation.

  • Reduces reflection from 36% to 1% per surface
  • Constructed of hard, durable and non-radioactive materials
  • Meets MIL-C-48497
