Easy-to-use, high stability Optical Mounts

Optical Surfaces Ltd. offer a range of optical mounts designed to mechanically support parabolic, spherical, and flat mirrors from 100 to 600mm (4 to 24 inches) in diameter. Employing high precision optics in applications where optical stability is critical is pointless unless they are positioned with absolute precision and stress-free. To fulfil this need, Optical Surfaces designed the OS Series of optical mounts to overcome the ease of use and poor ...
