There are lots of reasons why we like Aluminium mirrors at LBP, and why are customers are buying more of them! Here are a few to begin with:
- They are lightweight (30% of the weight of Copper)
- They have good laser damage resistance
- Aluminium is readily machinable by conventional machine tools
- They can be coated for UV, visible, IR, even THz use (not all at the same time !)
- Polishing can give supersmooth mirror surfaces
- They can be made with extreme parallelism
- They have many applications including high speed scanning mirrors, medical and dental optical systems, scientific instruments and gas analysis equipment and defence and aerospace.
