Manufacturer of optical filters, Semrock, Inc. (Rochester, NY), has released their improved ultra-broadband MaxMirror. Offering greater than 99% average reflectance from 350 nm - 1100 nm for both S & P polarizations with a 0° - 50° angle of incidence, the MaxMirror is ideal for diverse and demanding beam steering applications. With a surface flatness better than 1/10th wave, a 10-5 surface quality and high laser damage threshold, the MaxMirror is designed from the glass up to be a low scatter, low absorbance mirror that reliably performs in your optical system. This mirror is compatible with common mounts with a 6 mm substrate thickness.
