Optimax uses interferometric techniques to verify the plano axis and power axis of the optic. These techniques include plano reference flats, Distance Measuring Interferometry and CGH diffractive elements. Mechanical attributes such as wedge are verified with micrometers or by optical methods.
A CGH diffractive null converts the plane wavefront from a transmission flat to a cylindrical wavefront. This can be used to measure convex or concave surfaces. Available coverage varies greatly based on the size and shape of the cylindrical surface.
For more information on CGH nulls and an illustration of available coverage please see:
Our clean environment thin film coating lab has the capability to coat from UV through IR wavelengths. Featuring multiple chambers with deposition sources, including electron-beam and ion assist, Optimax can offer a wide variety of coating options including BBAR, V-coat, and mirror coatings. Custom coatings are also available. Coating verification is supported by Perkin-Elmer spectrophotometers.
