Low scatter mirrors

Edmund Optics introduces TECHSPEC low scatter off-axis parabolic (OAP) mirrors. Providing a surface figure of λ/8 RMS and a surface roughness of less than 50 Å RMS, these precision mirrors are designed for low scatter in the visible spectrum. They precisely direct and focus incident collimated light at a specific angle, resulting in minimal scatter loss. Designed using a proprietary process that decreases scatter in the UV and visible region, each low scatter off-axis parabolic mirror undergoes a visual inspection with a HeNe laser to ensure low scatter.
