The mission of the spin-off company Cutting Egde Coatings is to bring leading-edge process innovations in industrial production environments. The coating systems are designed for the manufacture of thin-film optical coatings for most demanding applications in fine optics and laser technology.
The coating process is based on reactive ion beam sputtering of metal targets. The equipment incorporates about 20 years of experience in the field of IBS coatings for high performance laser applications.
Custom-tailored processes are optimized by using test set-ups for damage resistance, absorption, scattering etc. designed according to ISO standards.
