High Precision Off-Axis Paraboloid for High Power Laser Research Groups
High Precision Off-Axis Paraboloid for High Power Laser Research Groups

Operated by leading high-power laser research groups such as ELI, LULI, and CLF Rutherford, Optical Surfaces' off-axis paraboloid (or off-axis parabolic mirrors) provide the advantage of unobstructed aperture and focal plane access. With their fully achromatic performance, they are also compatible with broadband or multi-wavelength applications. This allows Petawatt lasers to focus their massive energy on targets as small as a few microns, giving researchers the opportunity to address fundamental questions in areas such as plasma physics, X-ray radiography, proton therapy, and rapid ignition experiments. 

A stable manufacturing environment resistant to vibration and thermal variations

Fast-focusing off-axis parabolic mirrors provide unparalleled surface accuracy, surface quality, and surface slope errors. Optical Surface's manufacturing and test facilities are located deep within a series of tunnels carved into solid chalk and are ISO 9001-2015 certified. This environment ensures a naturally thermally stable temperature and extremely low vibration allowing high precision mirror testing, especially with long path lengths, to be quantifiable and reliable.
