SMI announces it has received additional funding for VLA optical coatings
Posted on February 02, 2006
Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) reports that it has received Phase II funding from the Air Force / MDA to develop a large area MOCVD tool to produce very low absorption (VLA) optical coatings.
The program builds on a successful Phase I effort that demonstrated enhanced reflector coatings for 1.06 µm laser radiation. The goal for the Phase II effort is to scale the technology to coat 0.5 meter components, and ultimately to produce VLA coatings on high energy laser mirrors up to 1.5 meters in size. The picture below shows a field emission SEM image of a representative optical coating stack, produced by MOCVD at SMI, illustrating the excellent film thickness and uniformity control.
About Structured Materials Industries:
Structured Materials Industries, Incorporated is focused on being the leader in Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) and related technologies. SMI offers for sale: systems, components, materials, and process development services. SMI has an in-house applications laboratory featuring multi-reactor deposition systems and analytic capabilities, has developed a range of strategic partnerships to develop and implement MOCVD technology and looks forward to continuing to grow and expand upon mutually advantageous relationships.
