    Thorlabs Adds Crystalline Coating Capability

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Thorlabs has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the business assets of Crystalline Mirror Solutions (CMS), a developer of substrate-transferred single-crystal optical coatings.

    By combining advanced semiconductor microfabrication techniques with bulk optics technology, CMS has developed single-crystal GaAs/AlGaAs-based coatings that provide three improvements to IBS deposited dielectric multilayers: improved thermal noise performance, lower mid-IR absorption, and enhanced thermal conductivity, which the company says will allow it to meet the heat dissipation requirements sought after by high-power laser manufacturers.

    The crystalline coatings developed by CMS typically have diameters ranging from 5 to 200 mm, but…
