anti-reflection coatingsS Eanti-reflection coatings from Vortex Optical Coatings

We produce a wide range of AR coatings, covering the spectral range from 300–6000 nm. Custom AR coatings are not a problem – we design and manufacture on site, all part of our rapid turnaround service, we like to think we offer the best service out there, typical one week!

beam splittersS Ebeam splitters from Vortex Optical Coatings

Custom designed beam splitters for visible and IR applications are a particular specialty. We feedback preliminary performance data in Excel format as part of the quoting process, the link above gives specific examples. Contact us today for expert advice on your needs.

dichroic mirrorsS Edichroic mirrors from Vortex Optical Coatings

Our dichroic beamsplitters tend to operate at 45° angle of incidence in a system and are used to split off 2 bands/wavelengths at right angles. We design and manufacture custom dichroics as well as offering some common solutions in our web shop.

hyperspectral imaging instrumentsS Ehyperspectral imaging instruments from Vortex Optical Coatings

Vortex support hyperspectral imaging applications in the IR by supplying infrared linear variable filters (LVF). We make custom LVF, but the web shop also contains some standard LVF for specific bands which can be used for lab tests to get a flavour of the technology.

infrared opticsS Einfrared optics from Vortex Optical Coatings

Vortex Optical Coatings design and manufacture infrared filters for the most demanding and complex applications. We cover the band from 1–6 microns.

interference filtersS Einterference filters from Vortex Optical Coatings

Vortex supply a wide range of bandpass and edge filters for visible and IR applications. We have inhouse design and manufacture using state of the art deposition equipment. Common applications are gas detection, industrial process monitoring, medical applications, smart agriculture and machine vision.

optical filtersS Eoptical filters from Vortex Optical Coatings

We offer a complete design and manufacture service for optical filters from 300–6000 nm, all deposited using sputter deposition to ensure excellent environmental properties, adherence to very demanding optical requirements and a cost effective solution. Prototype volumes to many tens of thousands all covered.

optical windowsS Eoptical windows from Vortex Optical Coatings

We supply anti-reflection coated windows, 'make complete', for low and high volume applications.

spectral beam combining opticsS Espectral beam combining optics from Vortex Optical Coatings

We make custom beam combiners within the band from 300 to 6000 nm. We guarantee prompt and expert advice for your particular application.
