Employing proprietary single-point diamond machining and optical polishing methods, we produce high quality reflective optics from 5-mm to 1-meter diameter in a wide variety of materials, including:

  • Electroless-nickel plated substrates
  • Beryllium
  • Aluminum beryllium composites
  • Aluminum-silicon carbide
  • IR Crystals 
  • Ferrous metals



We also produce a powered optical elements sizes up to 1 meter. Available shapes:

  • Spherical
  • Elliptical
  • Toroidal
  • Parabolic
  • Aspheric

Flatness specifications to 1/20 wave, 1-2 micro-radian slope error, and sub-20A surface roughness are readily achieved with our continuous polishing, diamond turning, and post polishing processes.

Available mirrors coating technologies include:

  • Electrolytically gold plated over electroless nickel plating
  • Thin-film depositions of protected silver and enhanced aluminum as well as gold over bare substrate material or electroless nickel plating.
