Edmund Optics Inc. presents deep-UV enhanced mirrors that are suitable for steering light sources at wavelengths through the UV, VIS and IR ranges. Offering >85% reflectance from 170 nm to 11 μm, the broadband mirrors are manufactured from an aluminum-based coating on a laser-quality substrate. They can steer beams of light from numerous commercially available sources, including excimer lasers; broadband xenon, mercury and deuterium lamps; and those used in spectroscopy, chemistry, ellipsometry and biomedical applications. They are useful for applications where light polarization is an issue, offering low polarization sensitivity at a 0° angle of incidence. The substrate has a wavefront distortion of λ/10 at 633 nm, a low coefficient of thermal expansion, and a laser-grade surface quality and scattering profile.
