Functional Optical Surfaces and Layers

Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF



Tailored surfaces for various applications are generated by optical coatings. The Fraunhofer IOF develops surface functionalizations and multi-functional optical coating systems on plastic, glass, ceramics and metal for wavelenghts from extreme ultraviolet to infrared. Tailored optical coatings are made for surfaces with a variety of requirements.
