Replicated Mirrors

Custom Replicated Mirrors

Replicated mirrors offer an attractive alternative to conventionally manufactured mirrors for those customers that require a cost-effective and repeatable high performance solution in production volumes.  Using our proprietary replication processes and materials, Holographix produces a wide variety of precision optical surfaces on metal, glass, ceramic, and plastic substrates, allowing the optical designer more choices when designing and optimizing their optical system.

Advantages Include:

  General Advantages

  • Freedom to select the most appropriate material for the mirror substrate (CTE matching, light-weighting, etc.)
  • Higher repeatability, mirror-to-mirror, compared to conventionally polished mirrors.
  • Higher production rates and lower cost compared to conventionally polished mirrors.

  Additional Advantages of Replicated METAL Mirrors

  • Simplified system design by building the mounting and alignment features into the substrate.
  • Ability to match CTE of mirror to chassis for thermal stability.
  • Reduced weight compared to glass mirrors.
  • Reduced risk of injury due to malleability of metals.
  • Simplified manufacturing and lower assembly costs through integration of mirror and mount.

  Additional Advantages of Replicated GLASS Mirrors

  • Aspherics are manufactured using low-cost, conventionally polished spherical blanks.
  • Direct replacement for conventionally polished glass mirrors.

Applications:

  • Military Optical Systems
  • Space-Based Systems
  • Galvanometer Systems
  • Spectrometer Systems
  • Gas Analyzer Systems

Solutions Include:

  • Off-axis Parabolic Mirrors
  • Lightweight Mirrors
  • Mirrors with Integrated Mounting Features
  • General Aspheric Mirrors
