ZC&R Can Deliver High Yield Narrow & Broadband Transparent Conductive Coatings for Ultra Thin Glass
Press release date: January 29, 2013
ZC&R Coatings for Optics, an Abrisa Technologies Company provides narrow and broadband transparent conductive and anti-reflective (AR) coatings with extremely high yields on ultra thin glass in thicknesses as low as 0.07mm. The transparent conductive coatings Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) and Index-Matched Indium Tin Oxide (IMITO) as well as narrow and broadband AR improve optical throughput and reduce stray light noise while providing low reflectance and good sheet resistance control without sacrificing optical performance.
Typical applications include:
Spatial Light Modulators, Micro-displays, and Optical Shutters
Mobile and Vehicle Mounted Displays
Slim Format Sensor Cover Glass
Telecommunications Equipment – Liquid Crystal Based Fiber Optic Switches
These coatings can be applied to the following ultra-thin glass microsheet substrates:
SCHOTT D 263® T eco – extremely thin and flexible
SCHOTT AF 32® eco – extremely thin and flexible
Corning® Eagle XG – high performance
SCHOTT MEMpax® – ultra-thin borosilicate
Other specialty thin glass
Presently, ZC&R can apply these coatings to 150mm and 200mm wafers as well as 6" square substrates with other custom sizes available upon request.
