Deep-UV mirrors

Edmund Optics issupplying deep-UV enhanced mirrors that are ideal for steering light sources at wavelengths through the UV, visible, and IR. Manufactured from an aluminium-based coating on a laser-quality substrate, these broadband mirrors offer greater than 85 per cent reflectance through a wide wavelength range from 170nm in the deep UV through 11mm in the IR.

The mirrors are suitable for use with almost any kind of light source, including: excimer lasers; broadband mercury, deuterium, and xenon lamps; and a host of other sources used in spectroscopy, chemistry, ellipsometry, and biomedical applications.

The mirrors are feature low polarisation sensitivity at a 0° angle of incidence. The substrate features a wavefront distortion of 1/10th wave (at 633nm), a low coefficient of thermal expansion, and laser grade surface quality and scattering profile.
