Optical Mirrors

Advanced Optics offers a full range of solutions for reflecting light to optimize performance in the UV-VIS-NIR spectral regions. Our high-quality optical mirrors are available in stock or can be fully customizable to meet your unique requirements. We offer flat, wedged, or spherical optical mirrors manufactured from a wide variety of substrates polished in almost any configuration. Mirrors may be purchased uncoated or with a variety of metallic coatings, highly durable dielectric coatings, or as partially reflective mirrors.

Our vast range of catalog, semi-custom, and fully customized mirrors allows you to choose the exact size, substrate, curvature, coating type, and reflectivity for your unique project.

Optical Manufacturing Capabilities

  • Fabricate polished optical mirrors from 1mm – 530mm.
  • Manufacture plano and concave optical mirrors.
  • Polish round, rectangular, and square substrates and can provide custom optical mirrors to meet your requirements.
  • Produce optical mirrors from a variety of substrates including fused silica, quartz, Zerodur®, BOROFLOAT®33, N-BK7®, and soda-lime glass.
  • Achieve parallelism of < 2 arc seconds and offer wedged mirrors.

Coating Capabilities

Need help correctly specifying an optical mirror?

Front surface optical mirrors, also known as first surface mirrors, are precision polished and coated to reflect light of specific wavelength(s). 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 an optical mirror.
