Abstract:

This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project explores the feasibility of depositing nano-layered protective coatings for ZnS windows and domes. Nano-layered superlattice consisting of two optically transparent hard materials will be designed for transmission to cover the multispectral ZnS window. Materials will be selected based on hardness and optical absorption. The superlattice will be fabricated by using magnetron sputtering. The coatings will be thoroughly characterized in terms of their durability and transmission under rain and sand erosion test conditions.
