Fast Focusing On-Axis Mirrors

on-axis-mirrorsBenefiting from a stabilised manufacturing environment – Optical Surfaces Ltd has built an international reputation for producing top quality on-axis mirrors, up to 800mm in diameter, for applications in high energy physics and astronomy.

In addition to achieving high energy densities – on-axis parabolic mirrors offer the advantages that they are simpler to align, can achieve faster f-numbers and are relatively affordable compared to off-axis parabolic designs. They are especially suitable for broadband or multiple wavelength applications due to their completely achromatic performance. A range of coatings is available from Optical Surfaces Ltd. including metallic (with or without protective overcoat), multilayer dielectric and ultra hard coatings for high-power lasers.

Using proprietary production techniques – Optical Surfaces highly experienced and skilled production team can depending on the surface accuracy required, generate very fast focusing on-axis parabolic mirrors to f 0.5.

Optical Surfaces Ltd has been producing optical components and systems for more than 45 years and is now accepted as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high precision on- and off-axis parabolic mirrors. Production approved to ISO 9001-2000 the quality and performance of large diameter durable high power laser mirrors from Optical Surfaces Ltd. is second to none.

High Power Laser Mirrors

Durable High Power Laser Mirrors

high power laser mirrorsOptical Surfaces Ltd. has established an international reputation for producing extremely durable coated mirrors up to 600 mm in diameter for use with high-power femtosecond lasers. Typical applications for these durable high power laser mirrors include plasma physics, laser manufacturing and telecommunications.

Using proprietary techniques – Optical Surfaces Ltd. produces laser mirrors of the highest quality and precision. Manufactured from materials including glass, ceramic, and silica – Optical Surfaces off-axis parabolic mirrors are designed to optimise the performance of rapid-pulsed lasers. All surface accuracies are checked by interferometer and are guaranteed to meet λ/10 p-v wave accuracy with low scatter.

Using the latest dielectric coating technology – Optical Surfaces laser mirrors provide minimum pulse distortion and the maximum usable bandwidth. For use with high-power femtosecond lasers operating at 750 to 850 nm, Optical Surfaces mirrors are designed for use at power densities of up to 100 mJ/cm2 for continuous 50-fs pulses without deterioration.

Production approved to ISO 9001-2000 the quality and performance of large diameter durable high power laser mirrors from Optical Surfaces Ltd. is second to none.

Optical Surfaces Ltd (www.optisurf.com) has been producing optical components and systems for more than 45 years and is now accepted as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-precision optics for high power laser research. The company’s ISO 9001-2000 approved manufacturing workshops and test facilities are deep underground in a series of tunnels excavated in solid chalk where temperature remains constant and vibration is practically non-existent. With such stable conditions testing, particularly with long path lengths, becomes quantifiable and reliable. Working with these natural advantages is a highly skilled team of craftsmen with a commitment to excellence in both product quality and customer service.
