Optical Thin Film Software is a
suite of Windows programs for designing, manufacturing, and
measuring optical thin film coatings. Optical coatings are applied to
glass and other surfaces by high vacuum deposition. FilmStar is
distinguished by its ease-of-use and connectivity to monitoring
instruments and spectrometers. FilmStar stands alone in the ability
of its users to customize and automate.

marketed to chemists and spectroscopists and supporting UV/Vis/IR data
acquisition and analysis from popular PerkinElmer, Varian, and Agilent
models. With its built-in development tools, Scantraq provides a
powerful alternative to the software supplied by instrument
