Functional layers

Underthescope5

ILFORD can design and manufacture a wide range of functional films. Our nanoporous layers reach refractive indices below 1.2 whilst maintaining mechanical resistance and flexibility. In combination with other elements in the multi-layer assembly, optical films can be designed with multiple functions such as light diffusion and anti-reflection.

The addition of functional chemicals in the layers can add sensory, luminous or biochemical activity to the films and ILFORD has successfully developed new technology and innovative products with leading international industrial and academic partners.
