The Optical Components department of LZH will showcase its current research activities, as well as its service and product portfolio, at the international trade fair for Optical Technologies, Components, and Systems. This year, the institute will exhibit jointly with Cutting Edge Coatings GmbH (CEC). Since its founding in 2007, the LZH spin-off has focused on the development and construction of ion beam sputtering coating systems (IBS).

Highlights of LZH and CEC at Optatec 2024:

•LZH presents innovative coating techniques including the production of complex optical filters using ion beam sputtering for coatings with the highest precision, as well as evaporation processes to expand material classes into the VUV range. LZH’s Spatial ALD system with rotating atomic layer deposition concept enables seamless coating of freeform components and lattice structures.

•LZH showcases offerings for customized optical characterization such as standard-compliant laser-induced damage threshold measurements from femtoseconds to CW range or calorimetric absorption measurements from UV to IR.

•Cutting Edge Coatings presents their latest developments in coating technologies for the future of optics manufacturing. This includes advanced thin-film technologies that enable precise control of layer thickness and uniformity, as well as special material combinations that offer higher resistance to environmental influences.

•In addition, Cutting Edge Coatings offers tailored solutions for specific requirements in photonics and other high-tech industries to support the next generation of optical systems.
