Optical Surfaces Ltd designs and manufactures a wide range of mounts for use with mirrors (mirror mounts) to optimize their optical performance. Ultra-high precision mirrors are useless unless they are positioned with absolute precision and are maintained stress-free.

Gimbal mirror mounts z seriesThe OS-Z range of mirror mounts from Optical Surfaces Ltd. provide ultra stable, stress-free mounting and rapid alignment of off-axis parabolic, spherical and flat mirrors as well as wedge back and parallel back mirrors.

Constructed in black anodised aluminium, six models of OS-Z mount provide a secure, stable and compact platform for mirror diameters ranging from 90 to 250mm. Angular alignment can be made about two axes by means of dual action adjusters with fine screw and ultra-fine differential micrometre action. Using these mounts it is possible to align a mirror within a few arc seconds. Each mirror mount comes with a base plate. As an option to the standard two-axis gimbal micrometre-driven action, OS-Z mounts can be fitted with x-y-z linear stages if required. This option allows you to control positioning of mirrors in up to five-degrees of freedom.
