Optical Mirrors - Metals and Laser mirrors

Pleiger Laseroptik’s optical mirrors for lasers and optical instruments are used in a wide variety of optical industrial sectors. Our research and development department allows for a speedy design process and subsequent production of customized optics and coatings. PLEIGER Laseroptik’s quality, reliability, and expertise has made us a long-term partner for a wide variety of optical industrial sectors.

Front Surface Optical Mirrors

PLEIGER offers a wide range of optical first surface coatings for optical instruments and laser applications. Metallic coatings are preferred for broadband applications and low power lasers. An enhanced coating boosts the reflectance by adding dielectric layers. But on the other side the region over which the reflectance is boosted is limited. Laser coatings are designed for a special wavelength.

Optical Mirrors – Material Options

The PLEIGER front (first) surface mirrors are coated for maximum reflectivity. We use precisely polished and fabricated metals and semi conductors. OFHC Copper, also referred to as Oxygen-free Copper (OFC) is an electrolytically refined Copper. It’s of high purity  with a level of oxygen as low as 0.001 % or below. It is more ductile and has a higher thermal and electrical conductivity.

Leightweight aluminium mirrors are used in optical systems for a variety of reasons. Some advantages lightweight mirrors include reduced weight and lower system costs. Especially aluminium alloys allow for surfaces with a very smooth micros roughness, even better than 3 nm rms. The rich abundance of silicon in nature and its minimum toxic property is a distinct commercial advantage over other synthetic materials. They comprise thermal stability, high durability and low costs.

Lightweight optics made of Silicon Carbide are a perfect combination of material properties and polishing technologies. This material offers high stiffness, thermal stability and good thermal properties. SiC is a non-toxic replacement for Beryllium without lowering the dynamic performance of the system.
