Clear Edge Corner Mount

ULTIMA Corner Gimbal mounts have the additional advantage of a clear edge aperture.  With the clear edge design, beams can be reflected from one mount to another at smaller incident angles taking less space between the mounts. Clear edge mounts are also ideal for compensating for pulse dispersion effects through multiple reflections on chirped mirrors.

Gimbal or Kinematic Movement

With a corner mount, the center of the mirror is intentionally located at the xy intersection of the pitch and yaw adjusters, i.e., at the virtual fourth point of the square formed by the ball points of the three actuators. To achieve gimbal movement, two adjacent adjustment screws must be actuated the exact same distance. For gimbal pitch adjustment, the adjuster normally used for yaw adjustment must be actuated along with the corner adjuster the exact same distance. For gimbal yaw adjustment, the adjuster normally used for pitch adjustment must be actuated along with the corner adjuster the exact same distance. In this way, the mirror is being rotated about two virtual axes that intersect at the center of the optic, aka gimbal movement. Adjust one actuator at a time and the mount acts as a standard kinematic optical mount. Adjust all three actuators to translate the optic in Z-axis.
