  • Parabolic Mirrors-Image
    Parabolic Mirrors - (17 companies)
    Parabolic mirrors offer excellent correction of spherical aberration. Parabolic mirrors can either be on-axis or off-axis. On-axis parabolic mirrors produces collimated reflected light. Off-axis parabolic mirrors focus reflected light to a focal...
