Optical Surfaces Ltd is a leading manufacturer of precision ellipsoidal mirrors for demanding applications in telescopes, beam expanders and high-resolution x-ray imaging instruments.

High precision ellipsoidal mirrors – Optical Surfaces Ltd

Ellipsoidal mirror for an XRD application

Ellipsoidal mirrors are the optical component of choice in these applications as they efficiently refocus the light from one focal point to a second without the need for additional optical components thus allowing for a more compact optical system.

Optical Surfaces routinely produces ellipsoidal mirrors in a range of materials (Zerodur, BK7, fused silica) with typical surface accuracy of better than lambda/10 (dependent on size and radius) and surface quality of 20:10 scratch dig.

Dr Aris Kouris – sales director at Optical Surfaces commented “In addition to supplying batches of coated ellipsoidal mirrors to a leading instrument manufacturer we also produce one-off and prototype ellipsoids in a range of shapes (largest dimension up to 650mm) that offer high performance and excellent image quality”.
