Aluminium Mirrors for Laser Applications

Solid aluminium mirror substrates can be used with all but the most powerful lasers. In the example below the pyramidal mirror has been electrochemically gold coated. The gold coating covers the vertices and the faces in one continuous layer that will never peel or flake.
