Technologies Mirrors

AMOS figures and polishes all types of mirrors for high-end applications. Glass mirrors, Aluminium mirrors, Silicon carbide mirrors, coating, lenses, gratings, …

High precision custom mirrors
according to your specifications

AMOS polishes mirrors in all kind of material down to a few nanometers RMS and with surface roughness down to a few tenth of nanometers. Shapes vaires from on-axis to off-axis aspherical mirrors.

币游网址 Delivery encompasses a fully finished and tested mirror, coated if requested. On request, mirror design and lightweigthing is also performed.

Typical applications are space laboratories, earth observation, scientific instruments and laser-based systems, with operational wavelength in IR, visible or UV.

Typical mirrors are:

  • Glass-ceramic mirrors: for telescope, test benches of space telescopes
  • Aluminium mirrors: mostly used for space missions thanks to its light weight. AMOS can propose free form mirrors for compact designs.
  • Silicon carbide mirrors: hard material mostly used for space applications
  • Other mirrors: various substrates are supported (Silicon, CaF2, ZnS, etc). Please contact us for feasibility information.
  • Coating
  • Lenses
