Where to Buy Anti-reflection Coatings

An anti-reflection coating (AR coating) is a dielectric thin-film coating applied to an optical surface in order to reduce the optical reflectivity of that surface due to Fresnel reflections.

Check List for Anti-reflection Coatings

Click here to see a check list before buying such products!
  • Does the coating have a sufficiently low residual reflectivity to avoid any problems with the application? Will that also be the case for some range of wavelengths, temperatures and angles of incidence?
  • In case of difficult substrates (e.g., very small end faces, strongly curved faces): will the coating safely stick to the surface?
  • If the substrate will be subject to large temperature variation (e.g., a nonlinear crystal heated in a crystal oven): are the thermal expansion coefficients of substrate and coating sufficiently similar? (Problems can occur e.g. for crystals with anisotropic expansion.)
  • For use with pulsed lasers: is the optical damage threshold of the coating sufficiently high?

In case that you need additional advice, consultancy from RP Photonics may be the solution.
