Cover Glass Removal

Image Sensor Cover Glass Removal

Some image sensors are available with a temporary cover glass, but many are not, including many of the most popular types in current production. We’re there for you. With a range of techniques at our disposal, even the most difficult to remove cover glasses on today’s high performance CMOS image sensors are possible.

This service often works in conjunction with our FO bonding service for faceplates or fiber optic tapers when the required image sensor is only available with a sealed cover glass. We can also supply and install a wide range of filters to enhance the sensor performance for specific applications, either in place of the cover glass or directly onto the image sensor surface creating a resilient assembly without the need for external filter mounting fixtures. Furthermore, coatings which enhance the spectral performance of the image sensor can be integrated either directly onto the sensor surface or on top of a fiber optic allowing the possibility of, for example, UV, X-ray and electron detection.
