Corrosion Resistant Windows
REO high durability corrosion resistant windows are produced using our Ion Beam Sputtered (IBS) coating technology. These low defect, dense coatings produce windows with extreme environmental stability, and mechanical and chemical (abrasion, salt fog) durability.

Ion Beam Sputtered Coatings (IBS)
REO pioneered the commercial use of IBS Coatings in the late 1980’s. With 22 IBS systems in operation today, REO is home to the world’s largest concentration of IBS optical coating technology. Our IBS technology produces thin films with exceptionally low scatter and absorption along with high mechanical and environmental durability. Utilizing primarily metal oxide materials, REO uses IBS to produce films which function from the UV through the Mid IR (up to 6um).Learn More
REO uses techniques such as continuous polishing and double-side polishing to produce optical surfaces of exceptional flatness. Double-side polishing is used to efficiently produce plane-parallel surfaces of up to 300mm diameter with typical flatness levels of approximately 20nm RMS per cm of diameter.
Continuous polishing consists of holding parts in a ring-lap configuration typically on a table made of pitch and is used to achieve much higher flatness levels, approximately 3nm rms per cm of diameter, on parts up to 250mm diameter.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.
