Aluminium Mirror

Aluminium Mirrors - Lightweight Optics

Leightweight aluminium mirrors are used in optical systems for a variety of reasons. Some advantages lightweight mirrors include shorter thermal equilibrium times, reduced weight, and lower system costs. Aluminium can easily be processed with SPDT technology. Especially novle aluminium alloys allow for surfaces with a very smooth micros roughness, even better than 3 nm rms.

Our aluminium mirrors are coated for maximum reflectivity. Plieger’s manufacturing capability covers optics for CO2 laser applications and optical instruments.

Silicon mirrors are available plano and spherical.
