LCuW water-cooled mirrors are designed to accept CW laser beams of 3KW/cm²
with λ/20 thermal distortion at 10.6 micrometers.
WHY MOLY MIRRORS? Moly mirrors have long been used with high power CO²
gas dynamic lasers. Advanced polishing techniques are required to polish
bare molybdenum metal to a reflectivity of 98% at 10.6µ. When this
is accomplished the resulting mirror has superb physical properties. It
is resistant to scratches and can be used in dirty environments. When
dust particles settle on a moly mirror they do not tend to get burned-in
or damage a superficial coating, as occurs with enhanced metal coatings.
Moly mirrors also have low thermal distortion and the highest CO²
CW laser damage threshold for any materials tested. ¹ As an option,
SPAWR offers a broadband high reflectance coating allowing these mirrors
to be used with a variety of wavelengths. A protective shipping/storage
container is provided with each mirror.
lasers require the best mirrors available. Uncoated copper mirrors by SPAWR
offer the highest quality and surface damage threshold available for medium
and long waive IR lasers. Coatings on these mirrors are typically not required,
however, they are available with a vacuum deposited protected silver coating
or an electro chemically deposited hard gold coating.

SUBSTRATE HOLDERS: SPAWR Industries, Inc. offers the optimum in low cost protective containers for optical grade mirrors. The "Plastic Substrate Holder" is a device used for storing, shipping and handling high quality optical mirrors. The mirror is securely mounted in a plastic container which prevents any mechanical contact of the polished mirror surface.
