Spectrum Scientific primarily uses the optical replication process to manufacture high volume, high precision replicated mirrors.
Replication allows us to supply high fidelity, high specification precision optics at a lower cost compared to traditional volume manufacturing, achieving surface figures down to λ/10 or better.
In addition, the replication process allows mounting fixtures and fiducials to be incorporated into the mirror substrate, increasing stability and reducing design and alignment costs.
Mirror types available in high volume include:
On or Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors
Standard Flat Mirrors
Hybrid & Complex Mirrors
Custom Monolithic Mirrors
Mirrors can be replicated on a range of substrate materials including glass, metals and ceramics and a range of coatings from 120nm to 10μm are available (for further information, please visit our Optical Coatings page).
