Robustly designed in black anodized aluminium, the mount can be tailored to match the size and shape of the mirror in a compact low-profile envelope. To enable optimisation of alignment the mount allows fine adjustment of mirror rotation. In addition, angular alignment (tip and tilt) of mounted mirrors is achieved about the vertical and horizontal axes using dual-action adjusters with fine-screw and ultrafine differential micrometer action.

Perfect for stability critical applications these low-profile mounts make it possible to rapidly align a large mirror within a few arc seconds. Each mount comes with a baseplate to facilitate rapid and simple mounting onto an optical table. For further information on a low-profile mirror mount tailored to your application please visit https://optisurf.com/mounts-and-mounted-optics/ or contact Optical Surfaces Ltd. on +44-208-668-6126 / [email protected].

The company’s ISO 9001-2015 approved manufacturing workshops and test facilities are deep underground in a series of tunnels excavated in solid chalk. This provides an environment where temperature is naturally thermally stable, and vibration is extremely low. With such stable conditions testing of all beam collimators becomes quantifiable and dependable. In addition to these natural advantages, Optical Surfaces Ltd. has invested in an extensive range of test equipment and uses trusted methods to ensure accurate and reliable testing of surface accuracy, quality, and slope errors.
