Off-Axis Parabolic Mirror

CMM Optic manufactures precise off-axis parabolic (OAP) mirrors in our diamond-turning facility, from a single prototype to production volumes.

When your application calls for the ability to collimate light without spherical aberration, you may need an off axis parabolic mirror to focus broadband light sources.

Key Capabilities: Our multi-axis diamond-turning machines allow us to transform your ideas into solutions. When combined with our world-class metrology lab, what you order is precisely what we deliver. In addition to parabolic mirrors, our SPDT capabilities allow us to manufacture polynomial mirrors, plano mirrors, folding mirrors, complex cylindrical optics and aspheres.

Typical applications include spectrometer configurations, collimator and beam expanders. Our mirrors perform in the UV to visible light spectrum providing industry-leading beam delivery solutions.
