DIVERSE SOLUTIONS FOR THE OPTICAL SYSTEMS MARKET

Materion understands the challenges of defense and space optics applications, and provides a diverse product offering to serve the needs of the Optical Systems market. From materials that provide the strength and light-weight properties that designers of space structures require to coating designs that can help reduce optical count and weight for multispectral and hyperspectral applications, Materion has the solutions to meet our optical systems customers’ challenges.

PROVIDING SOLUTIONS FOR A VARIETY OF CRITICAL APPLICATIONS

Materion is a leading provider of specialized materials to meet the needs of optical systems applications. Our products and materials are used in applications including:

  • Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) functions: Materion offers a wide range of filters, mirrors and multispectral arrays over all wavelength ranges to support ISR equipment. 
  • Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR): Optical filters for LIDAR applications are some of the most difficult to design and manufacture. Materion has over 30 years of experience in LIDAR optical filter science, and we share our knowledge with our customers though concurrent engineering services to ensure the success of their products.
  • Electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) systems:  Materion continues to develop lower cost fabrication methods and has added non-beryllium metal matrix composites that address increased performance needs in EO/IR systems including vibration control, weight, stability, and heat dissipation.
  • Precision filters: Materion coating designs can help reduce optical count and weight by allowing for a single window to receive and split off spectra for multispectral and hyperspectral applications. Filter performance can include multibands in UV, VIS, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR spectra.
