COATINGS

Gold

Gold

Our gold coating covers all the mirror surfaces - front sides and rear - so there are no discontinuities that can initiate delamination of the coating. Cassegrain reflectors and Herriott cells use our gold coated metal mirrors because the through holes in the mirror are also gold coated. More info>>

MaxR

MaxR

MaxR high reflectivity coatings for CO2 lasers are made on our copper or aluminium mirrors. There are situations e.g laser gain media, when even tiny losses are a problem (such as cavity fold mirrors) and an enhanced (or MaxR) coating is essential. More info>>

Polarisation

Polarisation

Our quarter wave phase retarder mirrors solve the problem of laser cutting metals with a CO2 laser. More info>>

UV/Visible
