KENLEY, England, Dec. 17, 2013 — Optical Surfaces Ltd. will provide the Samsung Thales R&D Center in South Korea with a high-precision off-axis parabolic mirror for testing large visible and IR optics, the company said Tuesday.

Optical Surfaces will supply the mounted, 600-mm-diameter mirror through its local distributor, Jeewoo Photonics Ltd. The high-precision (surface accuracy λ/20) off-axis parabolic mirror will be used by Samsung’s optical system design team as a universal collimator system to test optics under development for use in the company’s next generation of thermal imaging and electro-optical systems.

“Samsung sought a supplier with a proven track record in supplying affordable, large off-axis parabolic mirrors in an easy-to-use precision mount,” said MoonWhe Hur, product specialist at Jeewoo Photonics. “With over 50 years’ experience and expertise in designing such systems, Optical Surfaces Ltd. was the preferred supplier chosen by the optical system design team at Samsung.”

GLOSSARY
collimator
An optical instrument consisting of a well- corrected objective lens or mirror with a light source and or object/image (i.e. illuminated slit or retical) at its focal plane. Collimators are used to calibrate and align optical devices and elements, determine focal lengths, as well as replicate and project an source/object or image to infinity.  
thermal imaging
The process of producing a visible two-dimensional image of a scene that is dependent on differences in thermal or infrared radiation from the scene reaching the aperture of the imaging device.
