Complete mirror systems - IRELEC

The high precision mirror system is designed to handle one or several mirrors (switch mirror system, harmonic rejection mirror system or KB system) from 200 mm to 1 500 mm in length, with cooling and bending systems if required. It is fully UHV compliant down to 10-10 mbar.

The mechanics are designed to enhance mirror stability and guarantee the independence of highly accurate motion stages.

Depending on functional requirements, the positioning stages can be implemented in-air (motion transmitted through diaphragm bellows) or inside the vacuum chamber for high compactness and stability.

The support structure is made of natural granite chosen for its damping properties.

IRELEC proposes rectangular vacuum chambers (with base plate or top lid), as well as cylindrical chambers (with either vertical or horizontal axes), with metal seals or O-rings. The design, manufacture and assembly of the vacuum components are all state-of-the-art vacuum technology.

IRELEC builds in many mirror substrate types (single crystal silicon, low expansion glass…) from all major worldwide suppliers (Thalès-Seso, Winlight, Reosc, Zeiss, InSync, Pilz Optics, Jtec…), and proposes single metal, B4C or multilayer coatings.
