Hyperbolic Mirrors for Deep Space Observation

Hyperbolic Mirrors for Deep Space Observation

Optical Surfaces Ltd. is a leading international manufacturer of hyperbolic mirrors for deep space observation telescopes and earth observation satellites. A hyperbolic mirror is the optical component of choice for precisely and accurately focusing light in a telescope from one focal point to the other focal point. Hyperbolic mirrors are used in a telescope design to correct certain distortions caused by an extremely fast f-ratio design. A hyperbolic secondary mirror is used ...

Large Prisms for Demanding Spectroscopic Applications

Optical Surfaces Ltd. is a leading manufacturer of large, high quality prisms for spectroscopic, surveying and telescope applications. Prisms are solid optics that are ground and polished into geometrical and optically significant shapes where the angle, position, and number of surfaces help define the type and function. Spectroscopic applications typically demand that prisms must be manufactured with very strict tolerances and accuracies. Due to the variability in shape, size and the number ...

Aspheric Optics for Nuclear Research Laser Facilities

Aspheric Optics for Nuclear Research Laser Facilities

Optical Surfaces Ltd. is an international supplier of diffraction-limited aspheric lenses for nuclear research laser facilities. Nuclear research laser facilities around the world today commonly use powerful amplified ultra-short duration pulses of coherent light to deliver massive energy densities at a given target. The synchronised delivery of such high-power pulses generates extreme conditions that allow scientists to carry out state of the art nuclear research and to study the conditions that ...
