Polarization Control Coatings
REO manufactures a wide range of polarization control coatings for intracavity laser use, external cavity optics and non-laser applications. We are leaders in the production of high extinction ratio, high laser damage threshold films. We also specialize in coatings that control the phase differential between the s and p components in a polarized beam, thus enabling us to produce thin films with specific retardance characteristics.
Thin Film Engineering
REO Thin Film Engineering is the core technology of our company. Collectively, our engineering team has well over 100 years of TF manufacturing and design experience. We strive to be an extension of your own engineering and product development organization. We leverage our experience to provide you with the most efficient and robust solutions for your component and assembly requirements.Learn More
Activated Covalent Bonding
Activated Covalent Bonding (ACB) technology, REO’s proprietary adhesive-free method of bonding optical components, can be used to produce a wide array of monolithic visible and IR optical assemblies, such as cube beamsplitters, x-cubes, and beam combiners and separators. ACB delivers bond strength matching that of the bulk material, but unlike traditional gluing, introduces essentially no wavefront distortion, minimizes scatter and absorption. This bonding approach substantially improves component laser damage resistance and operational lifetime. It can also be used for applications at wavelengths where adhesives are not transmission.Learn More
REO utilizes a range of adhesive technologies for bonding optical components and optomechanics. UV curing adhesives often provide the most straightforward solution with a nearly instantaneous tack-and-cure process that is desirable for active alignment. However, REO possesses deep expertise in many other adhesive types, including thermal curing, multiple-component chemical curing, and silicone based RTV’s, each of which provide advantages for specific applications. REO takes care to understand potential issues with outgassing, material compatibility, surface preparation, wavefront distortion, and other factors that can affect the long-term performance of adhesive-bonded assemblies.Learn More
Our core production starts with optical polishing, includes super polishing, IBS coatings, broad focused metrology, including in house LDT and concludes with our active active assembly production. REO cutting edge technology enables the optimum manufacture of our products.
