OptiLayer:  Your Partner in Design and Post-Production Characterization of Optical Coatings


Coatings for Laser Related Applications

Most of the modern ultrafast laser systems include dispersive mirrors and other special coatings used for accurate phase control required for efficient pulse compression.

Laser related coatings are multilayers providing specified group delay (GD) or/and group delay dispersion (GDD) as well as required spectral characteristic (for example, high reflectance). 

Specific features/requirements of these multilayers:

  • Wide spectral range;
  • Many (70-150) layers; 
  • Stability to variations of layer parameters;
  • Accurate deposition and monitoring.

Design and production of these coatings require using effective numerical design algorithms and high precision deposition techniques.

OptiLayer provides all design tools/tricks for successful designing of complicated laser related coatings.

OptiLayer has a close collaboration with UltraFast Innovations team which has unique capabilities for production and characterization of laser related coatings.

 refractive index layer coatings

OptiLayer calculates all derivatives analytically! OptiLayer is only one software that provides such opportunity.

Completely analytical approach + needle optimization technique allow to solve many challenging design problems in the field of laser related coatings.

Main types of laser related coatings are:

  • Dispersive mirrors (broadband dispersive mirrors, high-dispersive mirrors);
  • Chirped mirrors;
  • Pre-compensation mirrors;
  • Ultra-high reflection mirrors;
  • Positive dispersion mirrors;
  • XUV mirrors;
  • Output couplers;
  • Input couplers;
  • Third-order dispersion mirrors;
  • Beamsplitters;
  • Pulse compressor;
  • Special filters
