Architectural Glass & Optical

 Optical and Architectural glass coating are also the main applications field for sputtering targets.

The ability of certain elements to selectively absorb and emit highly specific wave length ranges and also reduce glare due to their high refractive index when deposited on a glass substrate resulted in the development of sputtering and evaporation materials of elemental rare earths, such as neodymium and dysprosium and many other optically active and anti-reflective (AR) materials.

More recently, architectural glass for residential, commercial and office building applications has benefited from the availability of these same coatings.
