CLEARCERAM® MirrorsCLEARCERAM® mirrors to your exact specifications. CLEARCERAM® mirrors are made from a glass-ceramic substrate which features ultra-low thermal expansion over a wide range of temperatures. The material is approximately 70% ceramic, giving it mechanical characteristics superior to regular glass. Its crystal grain structure prevents the spread of micro cracks that can result from machining processes, a property which permits ZYGO to manufacture CLEARCERAM® mirrors in a variety of geometries, with very high accuracy. It is well suited for applications where very low thermal expansion is critical.
In addition to CLEARCERAM® mirrors, ZYGO has a wide range of optical manufacturing capabilities, such as:
• Multi-axis CNC machining & Single-Point Diamond Turning (SPDT)
• A large installed base of very large full aperture polishing process including many multi-meter class polishers
• Extensive experience in key sub-aperture finishing processes such as Computer Controlled Optical Surfacing (CCOS), Ion Beam Finishing (IBF) and Magneto-Rheological Finishing (MRF), through a variety of commercially available and custom made equipment
• Large coating capabilities and capacity
• Extensive cleaning (included automated) and inspection stations
• A wide range of metrology capabilities to characterize components across their entire Power-Spectral Density, with interferometers as large as 32" in diameter, and a wide range of state-of-the-art custom-made equipment.
