TECHSPEC® Aluminum Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors (OAPs) are a cost-effective solution for focusing incident light with minimal scatter loss. Available with enhanced or protected aluminum coatings, these OAP mirrors offer high reflectivity from the ultraviolet (UV) to the near infrared (NIR). These Aluminum OAPs are manufactured with multiple surface roughness specifications, offering designers the choice between high performance, low scatter mirrors and more cost sensitive options. TECHSPEC® Aluminum Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors are used in optical systems such as Schlieren and spectroscopy systems, as well as in laser systems to focus laser beams. For increased system integration flexibility, mounting plates that thread to the base of these off-axis parabolic mirrors are available.
