Spherical mirror substrates
Spherical mirror substrates are made of optical materials but used in reflection rather than refraction, like lenses, so optical properties of material have no influence on the mirror optical properties.
Solaris Optics manufactures custom mirror substrates – plano-concave and plano-convex, in its facilities in Poland.
Substrate material is chosen mostly due to its mechanical properties, taking into account given working conditions of the final element. Those spherical substrates are typically one-side polished and one-side plane and matt. Polished surface is well prepared for further optical mirror coating.
