Mirror Systems

IDT have built a range of large vertically and horizontally focusing mirror systems. These are available in mirror lengths up to 1.4m and offer a unique cooling approach for minimal vibration transmission from the cooling system to the mirror optic. Our 2 moment differential bender uses a closed-loop force bar system with bending along the neutral axis of the mirror giving zero strain on the optical surface.

IDT are a leading supplier of Small KB mirror systems. Our Small KB Mirror system offers dynamic figuring with sub-µrad slope error, a highly repeatable sub-µm focused spot size, and a low cost of ownership.
