Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O - www.pgo.com), announces the successful installation of a new optical monitoring system, the SL-2012A SpectraLock from Eddy Company (www.eddyco.com). The advanced system provides in-situ optical monitoring and rate control to produce single and multi-layered thin films with ultra-precision and accuracy.

PG&O’s president, Dan Bukaty, Jr., notes, “We are excited to announce our enhanced optical coating capabilities with the installation of Eddy Company’s special index dispersion enhanced monitoring (IDEM) system. We can now produce optical thin films that perfectly match our design programs and we can accurately predict the films our chambers produce with optical thickness monitoring and control from 1 nm to over 5,000 nm. In short, our optical thin films are about 10x more precise than previously available.”

We’re pleased with the opportunity to partner with Precision Glass & Optics, upgrading their precision optical coating chambers to the next level. The newly installed computer and software system provides calibration of the exact refractive index dispersion for each material and process used.  With the SL-2012A SpectraLock in place, the thin-film design program and the optical monitoring controller produce optical coatings that precisely match the design every time, without iteration or error. It is a revolutionary development in optical coating technology that has been field-proven and now lies   in PG&O’s capable hands.

Wayne Rodgers, President, Eddy Company
