Silver coated Reflector element is machined out of a block or a rod of carefully selected high optical quality Glass or Quartz Glass material, un-doped or doped with the appropriate rare earth or metal ions, depending on the filtering results we are looking after and on the state of the available doping/filtering optical materials technology.
From its skilled alignment during the deep-boring to produce the holes that shall house the rods and lamps, till its polishing stage, the highest parallelism and perpendicularity tolerances must be observed in order to achieve an efficiently operating element. The polished exterior cylin¬drical surface is then coated with HR silver and/or other metallic coatings, to form the high efficiency Specular Reflector. We can use chemical and electrochemical (Galvanic) coatings with Silver/Nickel and Copper/Nickel or other layers to shape the Reflector surface.
Various sizes and shapes of multifunctional Reflector structures to be used in Solid State Laser Heads are usually available within short notice in a tube-like form of circular and elliptical profile. Typically they can house one or more lamps or rods. We can deliver Reflectors both unpolished, polished/uncoated and polished/coated with Metallic coating (usually silver).
