New product from Osmic

Osmic, Inc. announces the installation of a new state-of-the-art coating system with the capability of producing multilayer coated optics with dimensions up to 1.5 m (60") length or 40 cm (16") diameter.

The equipment is used in Osmic's manufacturing process which involves coating optics under vacuum with proprietary X-ray reflective multilayers. Significant new capabilities include depositing high-precision thin-film coatings in which the film thickness can be uniform, graded in depth or graded across the surface of an optic. The large area format is also a substantial increase from the former limit of about 25 cm.

Osmic has over 10 years experience in manufacturing multilayer coated optics for X-ray and neutron applications.
