Bending Mirrors


As OPTOMAN is playing a protagonist role for laser system developers, the beam delivery setup in machines designed for micro drilling, micro structuring, micro shaping, and laser processing in general, motivated OPTOMAN to optimize Ion Beam Sputtering coatings for laser processing applications.

Key Problems

OPTOMAN has fought many battles. From the experience gathered throughout these years, he highlighted main problems laser processing faces.

Short duty cycle and lifetime of machines caused by coating absorption and laser damage.

Beam profile deformation.

Polarization sensitivity requires beam delivery components to be optimized for s and p at the same time.

Multiple wavelengths coverage in the system.

What can OPTOMAN do for the laser processing market?

Lower cost of ownership due to enhanced lifetime.


OPTOMAN’s concentration on high LIDT and enhanced lifetime IBS coatings allows industrial players to forget about headaches when components have to be replaced after a short period of time. Learn more about this here.

Laser optics made by OPTOMAN, due to low absorption, low surface roughness and high batch-to-batch repeatability, offer higher longevity, thus lowering the Total Cost of Ownership and ensuring the cost of supply wouldn’t be just the tip of the iceberg when purchasing optics.

Bending Mirrors for Laser Processing applications

Bending mirrors are designed to bend the path of a laser beam. Since they allow for precise and controlled laser processing, they are crucial components for these laser systems. For the laser system to work properly and as intended, these mirrors must be of best quality and feature exact as specified spectral performance, low absorption and scatter, and high LIDT.

Custom design Custom
  • Custom shape, curvature and size.
  • Spectral range 193 nm - 5000 nm.
  • Size range from 3 mm up to 360 mm.
  • Optimization for 2, 3, 4 or more wavelengths.
  • Various angles of incidence.

Superhero Power

Some systems in laser processing might have super efficient mirror requirements - possessing exceptionally high LIDT while still maintaining excellent spectral performance. If you have this type of system, you've come to the right place. OPTOMAN R&D team did a hardcore investigation and developed SuperHero Power Mirrors, in which the fatigue (color-change) effect is negligible and LIDT improvements are clearly visible. Have a look for yourself in the picture on the left.
