Optical mounts

Siskiyou Corporation has expanded their IXF series of monolithic flexure optical mounts to include larger models that can accommodate 3" (75 mm) and 4" (101 mm) diameter optics. These mounts utilize a unique configuration in which all parts (including the springs) are fabricated from a single piece of metal (steel and aluminum versions). This mechanism is specifically designed to securely retain high flatness components (e.g., optics with a flatness of λ/10 or better) without noticeably degrading their wavefront performance.
