OptoSic Scan Mirrors

AOS works closely with OEM customers to understand the application and develop custom configurations of optoSiC scan mirrors.

AOS is the authorized North American sales agent for Mersen optoSiC brand Laser Galvo Scan Mirrors. AOS supplies optoSiC mirrors in standard and custom OEM configurations.  optoSiC scan mirrors are available mounted and un-mounted XY laser galvo scanning mirrors from 10mm to 100mm apertures with a range of reflective coatings.

OptoSiC scan mirror applications include ultra-high dynamic, low inertia scanning mirrors for laser processing, streak cameras, LIDAR, security, sensing and targeting applications, where the enhanced flexural strength, homogeneity, high resonant frequencies, ultra-low inertia, and optical surface quality are key.   Contact us to Order »

AOS is today’s premier supplier of silicon carbide optics

Silicon carbide optics – the material for optics with the highest combination of specific stiffness (E/ρ) and thermal stability (k/α). High specific stiffness, high thermal conductivity and low thermal expansion make SiC an ideal material for maintaining both optical and mechanical performance in rapidly changing thermal environments. SiC Optical Mirrors resist dynamic & gravitational deflection and enable sustained athermalized optical performance in thermally variable environments.

Quality Control

All optoSiC products are quality controlled at four separate stages

  • Post-sintering aspect ratio tolerance and micro-crack inspection. Inspected parts are traceable with unique ID markings for product type and serial number.
  • Post-polishing metrology and interferometry
  • Post-coating interferometry check
  • Post-coating reflection, environmental, abrasion and adhesion tests

All OEM product Quality Control data is provided to the customer. Standard product Quality Control details are available on request.
