Optimax grinds and polishes prisms from various optical materials for UV, visible and IR applications for use in transmission or reflectance. Materials processed include:
Optimax utilizes deterministic CNC machine tools for complex shaping and a host of conventional processing techniques for chemomechanical planarization. Capabilities include:
- Double side processing for diameters up to 100 millimeters, producing parts free of detectable parallelism error
- Continuous lap polishers for diameters up to 300 millimeters, producing parts of lowest roughness and irregularity
- Cemented assemblies for complex prisms are available with or without image forming surfaces
For more information please see:
Optimax has phase shifting interferometers for precision measurement of flatness plus autocollimators and a Wild Goniometer for precision measurement of angles. Optimax makes transmission flats for interferometric testing of surface irregularity to 50th wave.
