Positioning of Challenging Optics & Mirrors Optical Surfaces Ltd

Controlled Positioning of Challenging Optics & Mirrors

Optical Surfaces Ltd. has been supplying custom modified versions of its high precision optical mounts for challenging applications for over 20 years.

Drawing upon the knowledge of skilled engineers and optical designers – Optical Surfaces is able to provide an optical mount design service that delivers an optimised solution for your application. Typical custom modifications include mounts for non-circular optical components and for supporting larger diameter optics (> 600mm). Various motorised mount options are also available to suit applications in hostile environments (under vacuum, elevated temperature, high pressure) or where limited space makes manual adjustment difficult. As an option to the standard 2-axis gimbal micrometer-driven action, Optical Surfaces mounts can be fitted with x-y-z linear stages if required. This addition allows the user to accurately control positioning of optical components in up to 5-degrees of freedom.

Optical Surfaces standard range of OS mounts were developed to support optics and mirrors such as off-axis paraboloids, spheres and flats in applications where stability is important. Constructed in black anodized aluminium – OS mounts provide a secure and stable platform for optical components with diameters from 100mm to 550mm. Angular alignment can be made about two axes by means of dual action adjusters with fine screw and ultra-fine differential micrometer action. Using these mounts it is possible to rapidly align an optical component or mirror within a few arc seconds. To facilitate rapid and simple mounting onto an optical table or other support each OS mount comes with a base plate.

Optical Surfaces Ltd (www.optisurf.com) has been producing optical components and systems for more than 50 years and is today accepted as one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-precision aspheric lenses. The company's ISO 9001-2008 approved manufacturing workshops and test facilities are deep underground in a series of tunnels excavated in solid chalk where temperature remains constant and vibration is practically non-existent. With such stable conditions testing, particularly with long path lengths, becomes quantifiable and reliable. Working with these natural advantages is a highly skilled team of craftsmen with a commitment to excellence in both product quality and customer service.
