Aluminum is ideal for broadband reflectors in the VIS range and well into the IR range. The additional protective coatings mean you can use aluminum as a mirror coating even under challenging environmental conditions, such as in condensing humidity. On the other hand, you can increase the coating's reflectivity by combining it with a dielectric coating.
Silver mirrors offer excellent VIS reflection properties and are used in moderate environmental conditions. Gold mirrors have a proven track record in the infrared spectral range in particular. The reflection properties in this range are excellent and offer long-term stability.
If metallic solutions are not suitable for your optical application, we can also offer dielectric mirrors on polymers for certain wavelength ranges. Therefore, we have developed procedures for a range of transparent and non-transparent polymers. We can also apply mirror coatings to substrates with complex three-dimensional shapes.
