ARO applied optics: flat mirror and beamsplitter

Опубликовано: 08.05.2021

Optical flat mirror

An optical flat mirror is a mirror whose reflective surface is a plane. In addition to flat mirrors, there are also concave and convex mirrors.If the light scattered by the surfaces of arbitrary objects falls on a flat mirror, and then, reflected from it, falls into the human eye, then images of these objects are visible in the mirror. Paraphrasing, we get that an optical image is a picture formed as a result of light rays passing through the optical system, propagating from an object, and recreating its outlines and elements.

Laser line beam splitter

A beam splitter (or beam splitter) is an optical device that splits a beam of light into two parts. It is an important part of many optical experimental and measurement systems, such as interferometers, which are also widely used in fiber optic telecommunications. In its most common form, the cube consists of two triangular glass prisms that are glued together at the base using a polyester adhesive, epoxy, or urethane. The thickness of the resin layer is adjusted so that (for a specific wavelength) half of the light incident through one "port" (ie, the face of the cube) is reflected and the other half is transmitted due to disturbed total internal reflection. ARO produces the best laser line beam splitter optics.

Applied optics and the widest possible use of ARO optics

Optical windows and stage glass are optical glass with polished faces that are relatively parallel and are commonly used as a protective element between two environments. They can be supplied uncoated or anti-reflective in various sizes. Applied optical complements can be used in all kinds of directions. All applied optics manufactured by Alpine Research Optics are shock-resistant and are also coated with a protective dielectric coating for long and reliable use. Ultimately, at the moment we are one of the most reliable suppliers of optics for any field of use: both for scientific, medical, and military fields.

Cylindrical mirrors

To change the curvature when selecting the parameters of the laser resonators, we used the elastic deformation of a mirror, which was thin platinum, under the action of a distributed over the rear surface or a concentrated load. For obvious reasons, this technique can be used to obtain precise optical surfaces of only a spherical shape. At the same time, cylindrical mirrors are sometimes needed. To create cylindrical mirrors of adjustable curvature, the phenomenon of elastic deformation of the mirror under the action of forces applied in a certain way was used. The difference is that to obtain not a spherical, but a cylindrical shape, the mirror itself is made in such a way that its rigidity in one direction is much less than in others.
