Optical Mirror TechnologyThe technology employed to fabricate these performance optic has evolved from our extensive experience in producing optics for some of the world’s most demanding laser systems. ARO supplies optics for the world’s largest laser system at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory National Ignition Facility and beam delivery optics for state-of-the-art microlithography tools. From substrate preparation and thin film coating to product packaging, the same expertise and care that goes into manufacturing these cutting edge stock and custom built optics available to you.
Stock and custom opticsWe offer a variety of stock excimer, ultrafast and solid state laser mirrors for use in ArF, KrF, Ti:Sapphire, and Nd:Yag laser systems. Our stock laser mirrors cover a broad range of the most commonly required specifications in terms of wavelength, size, reflectivity, and angle of incidence. These represent just a small sampling of our production capabilities. The bulk of our business is devoted to the manufacture of optics built to customer supplied specifications. We can readily produce optics customized in virtually every aspect, including size, shape, substrate material, surface specifications and performance characteristics. Please contact our technical sales department to discuss your custom optics requirements.

optical mirror coating
With us, you can be sure that we only use the most suitable materials for your specific project for your unique optical mirror manufacturer. We use different materials and always strive to match the material, shape, and reflective coating to your needs. Our engineers have been working with the creation of optical components for more than twenty years. Our experienced workers know all the nuances of the creation and functioning of optical mirrors, regardless of their type, shape, and material.
Choosing the right reflective coating can be critical depending on the application, as it ensures the highest reflectivity for the desired wavelength range. We work with aluminum and dielectric coatings. The choice of the shape and material from which an optical mirror is made can be as important. If you have any questions about the design for your optical mirror, you can always consult with our specialists. Regardless of the specifications for your optical mirror, you can be sure that the final product will always achieve the required standards.
