Advanced Optics, Inc. - How do I choose the correct optical mirror?

A good understanding of your mirror requirements is essential in reducing costs. For instance, the application of the optical mirror will determine which grade of mirror is appropriate. If accuracy is critical, a precision grade is required. The higher the degree of flatness required, the more expensive the mirror. For example, a λ/20 mirror will be several times more expensive th... (read more)

Advanced Optics, Inc. - Resurfacing Optical Flats

Optical flats and windows become worn and abraded in use and accuracy is lost. This degradation in performance is due to a decrease in the distinctness of the interference pattern, and to a change in the figure caused by scratches on either side of the flat or window. Repolishing the surface of a piece back to its original accuracy can be less costly than replacement. Advanced Optics mai... (read more)
