Precision Optics Manufacturing
Our products are created with the highest quality materials and assembled with the most advanced techniques available. From fabrication to coating, we can readily produce custom precision optics in virtually every aspect.
deep UV optical coating
Few companies can do coatings down to 193nm, so ARO stands out as a leading competitor in this niche. We were founded on our deep UV optical coating capabilities, and we developed a very good reputation for deep UV optics. Our products perform well in Excimer laser systems. Because we have optimized our coatings over many years, we have very good quality and laser damage results. Therefore, our products last longer and perform better for customers. Many of our customers come to us and stay with us after having poor experiences with other companies. We are able to do HR (high reflector coatings used on mirrors), AR (anti-reflective coatings used on lenses and windows or the backside of mirrors or filters), and PR (partial reflectors used for attenuators, mirrors, or polarizers) coatings in the deep UV range.
Laser Optics ManufacturerOptical components are designed to affect the reflecting, polarizing, filtering, and focusing. These can be incorporated within interferometry, testing, measurements, life sciences, microscopy and more. They are typically made from glass substrates with thin film coatings. Parts are designed to increase performance in their specific wavelength or wavelength range like infrared optics, visible, and ultraviolet. ARO has particular expertise in producing precision optics for solid state, excimer, and ultra fast laser systems.
ARO has one of the broadest inventories of standard optical components globally, offering a massive selection of optical flat mirrors, beam splitters, optical filters, windows, and optical lenses. Beam splitters, prisms, and optical mirrors are intended to alter or split light’s path. Windows offer protection from the environment for sensitive equipment like sensors or electronic detectors. Optical filters are capable of blocking and allowing specific wavelengths or wavelength ranges.
