Front Surface Mirrors, Mirror Optics

Overview of our reflective optical coatings

Front surface mirrors have an optically effective coating directly on the first surface of a glass substrate. Such components are also called optical mirrors, since they are used in optical systems and, as a rule, offer a good flatness, surface quality as well as a high reflection. Below you will find the links to our front surface mirror products:

SEA-VIS Enhanced Aluminum Front Surface Mirror (VIS)

Our SEA-VIS front surface mirror has an aluminum coating with dielectric over coatings, which enhance the reflectivity and protect the aluminum thin film. It is designed for the visible wavelength range. more...

 

SEA-NIR Enhanced Aluminum Front Surface Mirror (NIR)

The SEA-NIR first surface mirrors are also aluminum-coated, but they are enhanced for higher near-infrared reflectivity. They feature a dielectric over coating to achieve this. more...

 

SEA-UV Protected Aluminum Front Surface Mirror (UV-VIS-IR)

The mirrors of the SEA-UV series are aluminum-coated and protected by a very thin quartz (SiO2) protection layer. This allows both, a good UV-reflection, as well as a very broadband reflectivity up to the infrared wavelength range. more...

 

SHP-D High Reflection Front Surface Mirror for polarized light (VIS)

Our SHP-D mirrors are based on highly reflective dielectric coatings, optimized for the visible range and for both, polarized and unpolarized light. more...

 

SHP Silver Metal Front Surface Mirror (VIS)

The SHP is a silver metal coated front surface mirror with very high visible reflection for polarized and unpolarized light. The optical silver mirrors have a protective layer that prevents oxidization. more...

 

SHR High Reflection Dielectric Front Surface Mirror (VIS)

The all dielectric front surface mirrors of the SHR series have an enormously high efficiency and feature a low light absorption. more...

 

SHD Dielectric Cold Mirror (VIS)

The dielecric cold mirrors of our SHD series have a very high reflection in the visible wavelength range and are at the same time heat-permeable.. more...

 

DST Beamsplitter / Partially transmitting Mirrors (VIS)

The divider mirrors of our DST series are designed for unpolarized light. But they can also be used for laser applications as they are, with different dividing ratios. The partially mirrored optic is designed for the visible area and has an additional anti-reflective coating on the back. more...

 

SIR Dielectric Heat Reflecting Hot Mirror

Our SIR heat reflecting hot mirrors can be used as infrared mirrors up to 1100 nm and are transparent for visible light. They also enable efficient heat / light separation applications. more...

 

SIR-IR Dielectric Hot Mirror, Extended Blocking Range, Series

The SIR-IR operates similarly to the SIR, but has an extended reflection range in the infrared, which allows wider blocking of infrared radiation. The IR-reflectivity is less effective than with our SIR, but it is much more broadband. more...

 

SUV Dielectric Ultraviolet Cold Mirror

Our SUV-UV-cold mirror offers ultraviolet reflection as well as heat-transmission. more...

 

Spy Mirrors, "One-Way-Mirrors", TDS-Series

The TDS is a partially transmitting, first surface coated mirror, which appears transparent from one side only at certain contrast ratios. more...

 

Can't find the front surface mirror you are searching for on our web site?

Don't hesitate to request your individual quotation for your custom made mirror optics! We can customize each mirror in regards to the cut-on or cut-off points on a per coating run order basis. We can use other materials and add or modify thin-film layer systems to create almost any custom coating (dielectric coatings, gold, chrome, other metals) to your exacting requirements. For additional information, help and free and support, just click here.

Note: We do not coat mirrors based on acrylic or plastic substrates as acrylic usually can't offer the optical quality that is possible with glass substrates. Also, acrylic does not withstand higher thermal loads. Hence, we generally only coat glass. Also, we don't make normal backside mirrors for non-optical use at all. All of the mirror series listed on our web site are available within our 48h-Express Optics Service. So, shipping within two business days after receipt of order is possible (view details here). Worldwide express shipping is possible on request.
