Lambda/10 Mirrors for Government Testing for Aerospace

λ/10 mirrors are used in the aerospace environment due to the vibration


Knight Optical can offer you stock and custom lambda/10 mirrors for use in government testing for aerospace, in a range of materials such as BK7 or equivalent, Zerodur, Quartz, UV Fused Silica and many more. Mirrors are made from low expansion glass for optimum stability to maintain the lambda/10 flatness. The mirrors help produce high quality images and can be coated with a variety of coatings to ensure that the perfect quality image in the wavelength you require is achieved: Enhanced aluminium 94%R for visible applications. 99.9% dielectric for laser use in visible applications. UV aluminium for UV applications down to 180nm. 98.5% dielectric for laser use in the NIR applications. Ion plated silver for NIR-2000nm applications. Protected gold for 750nm to far infra-red applications λ/10 mirrors are used in the aerospace environment due to the vibration, temperatures & pressure through which they are exposed.
