Metal Optics from Aluminum, Copper and Molybdenum
Superpolished Metal Optical Components
Precision metal optics are now available from Valley's Metal Optics Group. Copper, Molybdenum, Nickel, Aluminum, Stainless Steel and brass are polished to a surface finish of 15 Angstroms to less than 100 Angstroms, depending on the material type. Using Aluminum optics rather than Nickel plated mirrors offers the benefits of lighter weight, lower cost, and more stability.
Other superpolished optical components include:
Best Achievable Metal Optics Surface Finishes:
Super fine finishes are also available on many other semiconductor and optical materials such as Silicon, Germanium, Indium Phosphide, Fused Silica, Pyrex, Optical Glasses, Ceramics, Sapphire, Silicon Carbide, Polymers, Crystals and numerous other materials including Stainless Steel wafers, substrates, and foils. Valley also stocks many of these materials.
