Dynasil Corporation of America Introduces Enhanced IR Coating Technology through Addition of Diamond-Like Carbon Coating Chamber

August 1, 2018 at 8:00 AM EDT

NEWTON, Mass., Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynasil Corporation of America ("Dynasil" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: DYSL), a developer and manufacturer of optics and photonics products, optical detection and analysis technology and components for the homeland security, medical and industrial markets, today introduced a PE-CVD (Plasma-Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition) IR coating technology by adding a new Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) chamber. The chamber is strategically located at EMF (a Dynasil brand) in Ithaca, New York, to serve our growing customer base and their cutting-edge coating needs across the country.

"Introduction of the DLC chamber is a demonstration of our commitment to quality and our passion for seeking new and emerging technologies to better serve our customers," said Gary Bishop, Executive Vice President of Photonics for Dynasil.

Introduction of the DLC coating chamber positions Dynasil in the growing IR coatings market. With highly precise and reliable next-generation techniques that up-coat, the new DLC Chamber makes "pinholes", the Achilles heel of coating, typical of systems that down-coat, virtually non-existent. Additionally, the new PE-CVD IR coating technology results in a much more robust and higher-quality product with Practically Zero Pinholes (PZP).

The new chamber gives Dynasil the capability to coat virtually all IR substrates including Germanium (Ge), Silicon (Si), Zinc Selenide (ZnSe), Zinc Sulfide (ZnS), Fused Silica and Chalcogenides.
