Optical Mounts

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Optical MountsSiskiyou Corp. has announced the OGX series of optical mounts, simplifying optical systems alignments.

The mounts feature top adjustment, allowing them to be set without reaching into the beam path. It also features a locking mechanism that limits draft to <5 μm, even when exposed to mechanical shocks of up to 4 G. Additionally, OGX mounts are true gimbals, meaning that angular adjustments to an incident beam don’t also result in later translation of the light path.

OGX mounts are available for both 1- and 2-in.-diameter optics such as mirrors, beamsplitters, filters and lenses. The use of fine pitch adjusters provides adjustment resolution as fine as 5.3 arc seconds over a total motion range of 7°.

The OGX mounts are primarily intended for space-constrained applications in high-performance optical systems that require extremely precise adjustment and exceptional long-term stability. Applications include airborne and spaceborne laser systems, laboratory use, astronomy instrumentation, and miniaturized life science instruments and tools.

An optical device for dividing a beam into two or more separate beams. A simple beamsplitter may be a very thin sheet of glass inserted in the beam at an angle to divert a portion of the beam in a different direction. A more sophisticated type consists of two right-angle prisms cemented together at their hypotenuse faces. The cemented face of one prism is coated, before cementing, with a metallic or dielectric layer having the desired reflecting properties, both in the percentage of reflection...
The scientific observation of celestial radiation that has reached the vicinity of Earth, and the interpretation of these observations to determine the characteristics of the extraterrestrial bodies and phenomena that have emitted the radiation.
