Optical Mirrors

Full Range Flat Optical Mirror Solutions

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

Whether you require one of our many catalog mirrors or need a custom fabricated optical mirror, from prototype to production, let Advanced Optics be your trusted partner - You can depend on our 100% outgoing inspection, on-time delivery, and unmatched customer service, all at competitive prices.

Need help correctly specifying an optical mirror?

Front surface optical mirrors, also known as first surface mirrors, are precision polished optical flat mirrors 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.
