From: Deposition Sciences Inc. (DSI)
DSI dark mirrors are ideal for defining apertures in optical systems where control of stray light and elimination of crosstalk are critical, such as in high-performance, low-light imaging or display systems for military, satellite, security and hyperspectral applications. DSI process capabilities deliver very broadband performance, and can produce precisely sized apertures ranging from circular to more complex geometries.

LPCCOMPANYNAME - LPCPRODUCTNAME Riflescope and Telescope Afocal Lens Testing
From: Optikos Corporation
The AF-1100 Afocal Module and the OpTest® Lens Platform together provide the two rotations required when measuring inverting and non-inverting afocal lenses. The lens under test is positioned on a rail so that the exit pupil coincides with an external aperture stop and decollimating lens over the AF-1100 rotation axis. Entrance pupil walk across the collimated beam is then minimized by setting the specified separation of the two rotary axes.
