Custom Optical Mirror Coatings

Does your project require a custom optical coating? Advanced Optics can provide custom metallic coatings to meet your specific reflectivity requirements. Simply provide your wavelength(s) of interest, the % reflectivity you require, and the AOI you will be using your mirror and we will design the perfect coating for your application.

Need help correctly specifying a custom optical mirror?

For an optical mirror to perform as expected, having a good understanding of your application (as well as specifying the correct optical characteristics) is essential to reducing costs and procuring the perfect mirror.

Careful consideration should be given to the following and provided when requesting a quotation for your custom optical mirror.

Select Substrate

Soda-lime Glass BOROFLOAT®33
Fused Silica
ULE® Low Expansion Glass

Determine Physical Characteristics

Tolerances for LxWxT or diameter
Scratch and Dig
Edge Bevels

Establish Accuracy

Surface quality:
Available 1/4, 1/10, or 1/20 wave

Available to < 2 arc seconds
Clear Aperture

Choose Coating

Wavelength or wavelength range of interest

Percentage of reflectivity required at a specific wavelength(s) at a specific AOI.
