Manx Precision Optics Ltd. (‘MPO’) are pleased to announce the installation of their second coating chamber. The Balzers BAK760 coating chamber with two e-beam evaporation guns significantly widens MPO’s coating capabilities in coated substrate size, quantity and wavelength range.

Adding to the company’s existing sputter technology, MPO is now able to offer a comprehensive range of optical components including high-LIDT polarising optics from the UV to the NIR and optics for ultrafast applications (supplied with measured GVD curves).

MPO’s new catalogue, launched at Optatec 2014, takes a new approach to the specification and pricing of coated optical components and allows customers to specify coatings suited for their specific requirements, while maintaining a catalogue pricing structure.
