Eliminating defects

The smallest defect on an optical surface often leads to system failure. Our goal is to minimize or eliminate system failures by offering the highest quality polishing and coating for our precision optical mirrors.

Precision mirrors are fabricated in a number of shapes and sizes, including aspheric and off-axis. Conventional optical grade flats or shaped substrates are precision polished and inspected at magnification and using white light interferometry to ensure there are no underlying defects before coatings. Careful cleaning and coating processes ensure microscopic particles are not encapsulated into the coating.

Durable and dependable

Dielectric laser cavity and beam routing mirrors demonstrate very high reflectivity and high laser damage threshold.

Protected and enhanced metal reflector coatings offer superior abrasion and climatic resistance for lower power applications.

Coatings

From high transmission broadband anti-reflection coatings to V-coats for high energy applications, our extensive coating capabilities for precision optical components deliver performance across the spectrum from the UV to the FIR. Take a closer look at our optical coatings service.

Metrology

We have made a significant investment in metrology equipment to ensure that our customers receive quality, high-performing precision optical components. More details on our metrology capabilities can be found on our metrology page.

Environmental testing

Environmental testing of components and coatings is critical for the assurance of performance in rugged conditions. G&H environmental testing capabilities include MIL-C-675C, MIL-C-48497A, MIL-E-12397, and MIL-M-13508C for endurance against abrasion, adhesion, humidity, temperature, and environmental conditions.
