About Perkins Precision Developments
Perkins Precision Developments (PPD) provides custom fabrication services using advanced manufacturing techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. Our low overhead structure and production flexibility are designed to maximize both quality and value. Target applications include semi-conductor test and inspection equipment, high energy laser systems, material processing, medical instrumentation, telecommunications, aerospace, security and defense.
PPD offers both coated and uncoated optics, as well as coatings on customer supplied optics. We utilize Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) coating technology which is ideal for complex spectral designs, high power lasers and applications where it is critical to minimize losses from absorption and scatter. Typical coatings include V-coat AR, dual-AR, HR, BBHR, dichroic, trichroic, beam splitter, polarizing and protected metal designs.
