Features

Absolute R>99.97% Mirrors In Stock

Many standard mirrors are offered with high average reflectivity, but these Supermirrors have exceptional absolute reflectivity specifications of greater than 99.97%. We stock theses mirrors making them the highest absolute reflectivity available in a standard catalog optic. These mirrors are ideal when you need every photon. The high finesse coatings have finesse greater than 10,000 and efficiency greater than 10% when used in carefully constructed cavities.

Superpolished Substrates

This mirror is superpolised to <2 Å RMS microroughness for ultra-low scatterring. 10-5 scratch-dig is achieved in the center 50% of the clear aperture. This central area is the sweet spot where Fabry pert cavity designs can achieve extremely high finesse.

Advanced Ion Beam Sputtered (ISB) Coatings

Newport's proprietary IBS coating technique enables the SuperMirrors to provide the highest absolute reflectivity available as standard mirrors. IBS is a higher energy coating process in which atoms of the coating material can be packed more tightly. The results are very high reflectivity, resistance to environmental changes, and unmatched performance for intra-cavity mirrors which require high finesse.

Keep Surface Clean for High Performance

Care should be taken to insure that these mirrors remain clean during use to maintain the high reflectivity and performance levels. The only cleaning operation recommended is the removal of dust with a low pressure filtered dry nitrogen nozzle. Cleaning techniques specifically developed for high performance optics may be used by qualified personnel. 100 ppm performance levels cannot be maintained if the optic is cleaned using standard techniques.

UV Fused Silica Substrates

Fused Silica is synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide of extremely high purity. This non-crystalline, colorless silica glass combines a low content of inclusions with high refractive index homogeneity, a very low thermal expansion coefficient, and excellent transmittance in the wavelength regime from UV to NIR. As a result, these mirrors will perform better with temperature fluctuations and is ideal for high-energy laser applications due to its high energy damage threshold.
