ARO Products

Optical Mirrors

Optical Mirrors are designed to reflect light for a variety of applications, including beam steering, interferometry, imaging, or illumination.


Beamsplitters are optical components used to split input light into two separate parts. Beamsplitters are common components in laser or illumination systems.

Polarization Optics

Polarization optics are used in imaging applications to reduce glare or hot spots, enhance contrast, or to perform stress evaluations.

Anti Reflective Optics

An antireflective or anti-reflection (AR) coating is a type of optical coating applied to the surface of lenses and other optical elements to reduce reflection.

Optical Windows

Optical Windows are flat, plane-parallel plates that are often used as protective barriers for electronic sensors or detectors from outside environments.

Optical Filters

Optical Filters are used to selectively transmit or reject a wavelength or range of wavelengths. Optical Filters are used in applications such as spectroscopy, clinical chemistry, or machine vision inspection.

Optical Lenses

Optical Lenses are components designed to focus or diverge light. They may consist of a single or multiple elements, are used in a wide variety of applications from medical to laser processing.

Ultrafast Optics

Ultrafast Optics feature designs specifically tailored for use with ultrafast lasers with short pulse durations on the order of picoseconds, femtoseconds, or attoseconds.

Optics Manufacturing

Optical components are designed to affect the state of light in several different ways such as reflecting, polarizing, filtering, and focusing. Optical components can be incorporated within a massive amount of applications like interferometry, testing, measurements, life sciences, and microscopy. Optical components are typically made from glass substrates with thin film coatings. Parts are designed to increase performance in their specific wavelength or wavelength range like infrared, visible, and ultraviolet. ARO has particular expertise in producing laser optics for solid state, excimer, and ultrafast laser systems.

Alpine Research Optics has one of the broadest inventories of standard optical components globally, offering a massive selection of mirrors, beam splitters, optical filters, windows, and optical lenses. Optical lenses are engineered to diverge or focus light. Beam splitters, prisms, and optical mirrors are intended to alter or split light’s path. Windows offer protection from the environment for sensitive equipment like sensors or electronic detectors. Optical filters are capable of blocking and allowing specific wavelengths or wavelength ranges.
