In the precipitation of optical interference filter systems, the realized thickness of the individual layers is crucial to the success or failure of production. That is why Fraunhofer IST has developed a monitoring system that supports the combination of multiple measurement systems in order to achieve the best possible result. A transmission monitor is used here as a rule for precision optical coatings. Our Modular Optical Coating Control Application (MOCCA+®) can handle precisely this task for you. In addition to layer thickness control, the system can also be used in order to automate the entire coating process.
MOCCA+® offers the following benefits:
- Higher precision
- In-situ error compensation and redesign
- Avoidance and/or reduction of test runs
- Less waste and better performance
- Process automation
Thanks to the modular and flexible programming of the software, the implementation can be adapted to customer-specific requirements quickly. Recording specific customer needs for further development of the system is welcome.
