Custom KB systems - IRELEC

Based on unique technology for dynamically-figured (bent) mirrors, IRELEC proposes custom Kirkpatrick-Baez mirror system design fully adapted to any specific need.

In particular, IRELEC proposes:

  • HFM and VFM with sensibly different sizes
  • All focusing configuration (upwards, downwards, sidewards)
  • Specific translation and rotation stages
  • Mechanical integration on existing stands
  • Specific geometry for vacuum chambers
