Auer Lighting are an IATF 16949 certified global supplier of optical components for the automotive industry, also providing highly complex coatings for lidar systems.
Auer’s metallic and dichroic thin film designs are widely used in the automotive and optoelectronics industry. Coatings on inner and outer surfaces of glass and polymer substrates in flat or 3D shape, e.g. glass tubes, are Auer’s daily business; their customers value these solutions for their reliability, consistency, and affordability over large quantities and cost efficiency.
To minimise high scattering losses in the light path, Auer Lighting’s optical components are enhanced with an anti-reflective coating optimised for laser wavelengths. Multilayer coatings from Auer Lighting are designed for high incidence angles and achieve a residual reflection less than 0.5%. This significantly increases the overall efficiency of the system and thus the safety for collision avoidance.
As an extra plus to the optical advantages, lidar AR-thin films from Auer Lighting offer the components additional protection against accelerated aging due to chemical and thermal environmental influences.
