Mirrors for Quantum Cascade Lasers

Quantum Cascade Lasers are becoming more available, and are finding more and more uses, not least in gas sensing and defence applications.

We offer two types of mirror coating, “Protected Silver” and “Electroplated Gold” both of which are well-proven with customers using QCL sources.

Either of these coatings can be deposited onto Copper or Aluminium substrates, and offer a broad, flat reflectivity of around 99%  in the 1 to 300um wavelength spectrum.
