Diamond Like Carbon 8µm-12µm


Productnumber: 2Ge000003

This is an extremely rugged and abrasion resistant anti reflection coating for use in the 8-12µm waveband. These properties make it ideal for external surface applications where extreme environmental conditions will be encountered such as marine environments.

It is normally used in conjunction with a high efficiency anti-reflection coating (UCS_GE_01) on the second surface.
