Mirrors for lasers and optical instruments
Pleiger Laseroptik’s mirrors for lasers and optical instruments are used in laser material processing, medical technology, measurement technology, spectroscopy, aerospace applications, and FLIR. 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.
Metal mirrors are heavy and mainly used in high power applications like laser cutting and welding. Water cooling may be added.
Silicon is one of the most widely used material for laser scanning and cutting applications.
Beryllium and Silicon Carbide are only used for high speed scanning applications.
Mirrors made of optical glasses and braodband coated are used in optical instruments.
Protected Gold, Silver and Aluminium Mirrors are used for broadband applications in optical instruments, spectroscopy and IR technology. They offer a good reflection over a wide wavelength range.
NIR-FIR: Gold and Silver recommended
VIS: Silver and Aluminium recommended
UV: Aluminium only
Enhanced metal coatings show an increased reflection at a selected wavelength range.
