Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) Coated Silicon Windows

×

Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) Coated Silicon Windows provide anti-reflection coating on one surface and a specially designed DLC coating on the other surface, making these windows highly durable and ideal for harsh environments. The DLC Coated surface is designed to withstand temperature cycling from -62 to +71°C, salt spray for a continuous period of 72 hours, and 1,000 wiper oscillations in a sand and slurry mixture. Further, these windows meet the MIL-F-48616 and MIL-C-48497C requirements for severe abrasion. Silicon features a Knoop Hardness of 1150 and low density, making it tougher than germanium substrates and suitable for weight-sensitive applications, respectively. Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) Coated Silicon Windows are engineered for 3 to 5µm, making them ideal for infrared defense applications such as thermal imaging.
