Diamond-like carbon coating
Diamond-like carbon (DLC) is a class of amorphous carbon material that displays some of the typical properties of diamond. DLC is usually applied as coatings to other materials that could benefit from some of those properties.

SAMCO's PD-200D is an automated, ion-assisted CVD (chemicalvapordeposition) processing system specifically designed for the rapid deposition of DLC Coating (Diamond Like Carbon Coating) on a variety of substrate. Diamond like carbon Coating (DLC) is a class of amorphous carbon material that displays some of the typical properties of diamond. DLC Coating is usually applied as coatings to other materials that could benefit from some of those properties. This system can also be used to an isotropically etch DLC films and silicon-based films at high rates.

OPTICAL COATING
An optical coating is one or more thin layers of material deposited on an optical component such as a lens or mirror, which alters the way in which the optic reflects and transmits light. One type of optical coating is an antireflection coating,
