Mirror Mounts for High Precision Optics

Ultra-high precision optics are useless unless they are positioned with absolute precision and stress-free. To fulfil this need, Optical Surfaces Ltd designs and manufactures mounts specifically for use with parabolic, spherical and flat mirrors to optimize the optical performance of optical systems.

Optical Surfaces OS-Z Series mirror mounts were developed to support off-axis paraboloid, spherical and flat mirrors in a manner that allows overcoming a number of constrains imposed by general purpose mounts. Two key advantages gained by using an OS-Z mount together with an off-axis parabolic mirror are rapid alignment using an optional pre-alignment aid and the ability to routinely accommodate wedge back and parallel back mirrors. In addition, in applications where long term stability and stress-free mounting are important, the special factory fitted features allow this to be easily achieved.
