Edmund Optics® (EO) introduces TECHSPEC® Low Scatter Off-Axis Parabolic (OAP) Mirrors. Providing a surface figure of λ/8 RMS and a surface roughness of less than 50Å RMS, these precision mirrors are designed for low scatter in the visible spectrum. They are excellent when used for focusing, collimation, beam expansion, and optical testing systems such as MTF test benches. The EO OAP family has expanded from five models to more than 40 models, providing additional options and flexibility. Examples of these additional options include two new coatings, Protected Gold and UV Enhanced Aluminum, and a new size, ¼”, within the product family. The product family will continue to expand in the upcoming months.
Designed to decrease scatter in the UV and VIS regions
TECHSPEC® Low Scatter Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors precisely direct and focus incident collimated light at a specific angle, resulting in minimal scatter loss. Designed using a proprietary process that decreases scatter in the UV and visible region, each TECHSPEC® Low Scatter Off-Axis Parabolic Mirror undergoes a visual inspection with a HeNe laser to ensure low scatter. These aluminum 6061-T6 substrate mirrors are characterized with improved surface roughness (<50Å RMS) and surface figure (λ/8) when compared to standard off-axis parabolic mirrors. TECHSPEC® Low Scatter Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors are in-stock and ready for immediate delivery.
