Optical Mirrors

Optical Mirrors are designed to reflect light across the UV, VIS, as well as IR spectral areas, in ways that maintain most of its initial quality. There are mirrors that additionally filter out a few wavelengths, whilst keeping additional wavelengths in the reflection. Mirrors are distinctive from some other light-reflecting objects which do not maintain the majority of the primary wave signal besides color and also diffuse reflected light.
The common kind of mirror is the plane mirror, with a flat surface. Curved mirrors are applied, to create strengthened or even decreased visuals, focus light in addition to distort the reflected image.

The metallic mirror coatings obtain high reflectivity over the broadest spectral area, whereas the broadband dielectric mirrors possess a narrower spectral range of operation. The normal reflectivity through the specific section is more than 99%.
Optical Mirrors function in an array of industrial sectors as well as scientific instruments, that include life sciences, astronomy, metrology, semi conductor and even solar. They are applied for a range of applications, like beam steering, interferometry, imaging as well as illumination.
Metal substrate Optical Mirrors are ideal for applications needing a continuing coefficient of thermal expansion between the Optical Mirror and the mount. Optical Mirrors with a concave surface are best for light focusing applications.
SK-Advanced offers a range of Flat Metallic Mirrors, Flat Dielectric Mirrors, Spherical Mirrors, Right Angle Reflector Mirrors and Beam Splitter Mirrors, in a multitude of reflective coating options, including aluminum (Al), silver (Ag).and gold (Au). Choosing the proper reflective coating option ensures high reflectivity of the needed wavelength or wavelength range. Also keep in mind values of reflectivity, laser damage resistance and the coating durability.
