A World Leader in Optical Thin Film Coatings
We create advanced optical film coatings that enable cutting-edge applications in the aerospace, defence and healthcare sectors. Recognised as pioneers in photonics for more than 60 years, our market-leading products help to protect and enhance the lives of people all over the world.
From the latest head-up displays, precision laser protection and aircraft ice detection equipment, to essential components in gas analysis, 3D printing and thermal imaging applications, customers rely on the expertise of our talented physicists and engineers to develop products that continually redefine industry standards. Our unique technical capabilities and state-of-the-art facilities enable us to take on the complex challenges our competitors are unable to tackle.
From head-up display combiners that enable flight data to be projected into the pilot's normal field of vision, to technology that removes the distraction of stray light reflected from instrument panels, our products lead the way.
We’re acknowledged as world leaders in coatings for military head-up and helmet-mounted displays, and our laser protection filters safeguard the occupants of military vehicles from high-powered lasers used on the battlefield.
Organisations benefit from our technology in gas detection instruments. Our laser protection filters safeguard the eyes of surgeons in operating theatres. And our products enable patient monitoring systems that give carers vital physiological data.
