Low-Scatter Surface Mirror Family

Oct. 30, 2017
Edmund Optics introduces a new mirror family for broadband and UV applications.

Edmund Optics (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces new TECHSPEC 100 Ã Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors. This new mirror family is used in broadband UV, visible, and IR applications. Each precision-manufactured, interferometer-tested mirror features a diamond turned surface with surface roughness down to 100 Å RMS, producing low-scatter surfaces. TECHSPEC 100 Å Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors (OAPs) are not wavelength dependent and are therefore free of chromatic and spherical aberration across a broadband range. These mirrors are ideal for use in instrumentation and laser systems, including Schlieren, MTF, FLIR and FTIR, as well as with IR lasers such as Quantum cascade lasers.


TECHSPEC 100 Å Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors are manufactured with a solid metal Aluminum 6061T6 substrate, with no adhesives, for excellent thermal conductivity. OAPs have a focal point which is not in line with the optical axis, allowing users to incorporate various components into the system and optimize workspace. Unrestricted access to the focal point allows more compact systems with smaller footprints to be designed.


TECHSPEC® 100 Å Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors have protected aluminum, protected gold, and bare gold coatings that cover wavelength ranges from 400nm to greater than 12,000nm. A protective dielectric overcoat layer reduces any potential atmospheric or cleaning damage. This increases the metal coating's durability and provides protection from oxidation, without modifying the coating performance. TECHSPEC 100 Å Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors are available in 15, 30, 45, 60 or 90-deg. off-axis options. In-house design, manufacturing, and coating capabilities are available for custom requests. TECHSPEC 100 Å Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors are in-stock and available for immediate delivery.
