Precision Mirrors

Spectrum Scientific offer a cost-effective solution to producing low or high volume precision mirrors and optical components. The optical performance and environmental stability of replicated optics is equivalent to optics produced using conventional methods.

Available on a wide range of substrates including glass, aluminum and silicon carbide, replicated optics can be used in a variety of applications where complex optical surfaces are utilized. Often an optical surface can be replicated onto the mounting structure leading to easier alignment and further cost savings.

Replicated optics are manufactured by first producing a master to the required specification and then transferring the optical quality of the master to a substrate through a replication process rather than by conventional polishing (see the replication process explained). This process allows the production of optics that have nearly identical specifications as the originals at a fraction of the cost.

We offer silicone free production and test areas and are ISO 9000:2008 certified and space qualified. 

In addition to custom manufactured mirrors, Spectrum Scientific offers a range of standard mirrors. If we do not have a mirror that meets your requirement, please contact our sales department as new mirrors are manufactured on a regular basis.
