Optical Surfaces Ltd. is a leading producer of on-axis parabolic mirrors for ground-breaking applications in fundamental, high-power laser physics research.
Benefiting from an ultra-stable manufacturing environment and employing proprietary production techniques the highly experienced and skilled engineers at Optical Surfaces can, depending on the surface accuracy required, generate very fast focusing on-axis parabolic mirrors (< f 0.7).
On-axis parabola are the fast-focusing mirror of choice suitable for both broadband and multiple wavelength applications due to their completely achromatic performance. To optimise their performance – Optical Surfaces offers a range of protective mirror coatings including metallic, multilayer dielectric and ultra-hard coatings for the most demanding high-power lasers. Manufactured from materials including glass, ceramic, and silica – fast focusing on-axis parabolic mirrors from Optical Surfaces are designed to optimise the performance of ultra-high power pulsed lasers. All surface accuracies are checked by interferometer and are guaranteed to be better than λ/10 p-v wave accuracy with low scatter.
In combination with the latest dielectric coating technology – Optical Surfaces fast focusing on-axis mirrors provide minimum pulse distortion and the maximum usable bandwidth. For use with high-power femtosecond lasers operating at 750 to 850 nm, these fast-focusing mirrors can be used at power densities of up to 100 mJ/cm2 for continuous 50-fs pulses without deterioration. Production approved to ISO 9001-2015 the quality and performance of fast focusing on-axis parabolic mirrors from Optical Surfaces Ltd. is second to none.
Optical Surfaces Ltd has been producing optical components and systems for more than 50 years and is today accepted as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-precision optics for fundamental, high-power laser physics research.
