Broadband Mirrors steer UV, visible, and IR light beams.

Press Release Summary:

Manufactured from aluminum-based coating on laser-quality substrate, Deep UV Enhanced Mirrors steer beams of light from commercially available sources at wavelengths through UV, visible, and IR. Products feature low polarization sensitivity at 0° angle of incidence, and substrate has wavefront distortion of 1/10 wave (@ 633 nm). Mirrors offer greater than 85% reflectance through wavelength range of 170 nm in deep UV through 11 mm in IR.

Edmund Optics Presents Broadband Mirrors

January 25, 2006, Barrington, NJ. Edmund Optics offers Deep UV Enhanced Mirrors that are ideal for steering light sources at wavelengths through the UV, visible, and IR. Manufactured from an aluminum-based coating on a laser-quality substrate, these broadband mirrors offer >85% reflectance through the wide wavelength range from 170 nm in the deep UV through 11 mm in the IR.

Beams of light from almost any commercially-available source can be steered using these mirrors, including excimer lasers; broadband mercury, deuterium, and xenon lamps; and a host of other sources used in spectroscopy, chemistry, ellipsometry, and biomedical applications.

The mirrors are also useful for applications with light polarization issues: they are
designed to feature low polarization sensitivity at a 0° angle of incidence. The substrate features a wavefront distortion of 1/10th wave (@633nm), low coefficient of thermal expansion, and laser grade surface quality and scattering profile.
