Extreme low-loss Mirrors


Are you involved with certain applications that require extreme low-loss optics? You are in a right place. New improved mirrors complement OPTOMAN product range. IBS coated mirrors deliver maximum reflectivity of R>99.998% and total losses <15 ppm (absorption, scatter and transmission) at discrete wavelength and angle of incidence.
Coatings are applied on high purity fused silica substrates (plane, spherical or wedged) polished to RMS roughness of < 2 Å. At the same time coatings feature high environmental stability due to near-bulk packing density of coating films that experience virtually no performance shift due to environmental factors, such as temperature and humidity.
Very high reflectance values for complex coating designs, e.g. GTI laser mirrors with R>99.95% or thin-film polarizers with Tp/Ts >3000:1 can be utilized as well. Please inquire OPTOMAN for more details.


Reflectance >99.998%

Mirrors available with CRD measurement report to justify reflectivity and loss values.

High laser induced damage threshold

Ultra-hard dielectric coatings for high damage threshold in most demanding laser applications. LIDT values reach >50 J/cm2 @ 1064 nm, 10 ns, S-on-1.

Extremely low absorption and scatter loss

IBS coated mirrors feature absorption below 1 ppm.

Super polished fused silica substrates

Substrates with RMS roughness <1 Å are mandatory for making extreme low-loss coatings.
