'Ready to Ship' Optics


Silicon Carbide, Silicon, & Sapphire

Looking for the more exotic materials?  You've come to the right place!  Our polishing process is capable of polishing each of these materials to sub-angstrom rms surface finishes.  In addition, surface figures of 1/50th wave or better are also possible.

Whether you're looking for the lightweight and dimensional stability of Silicon Carbide, the high tensile strength and scratch resistant durability of Sapphire, or the semiconductor properties of Silicon, we can help. Years of experience working with these materials has let us create strong partnerships with some of the best material suppliers in the world.  Combining the best materials along with our robust 'Super-Polishing' techniques results in the finest quality optics available today!

Need Your Optical Flat Measured?

We have the answer!

Figure Measurements to 12"

Let our metrology department measure and certify your optical test flat to keep it in compliance.  Precision optical test flats require recertification every 2 years.  Now, diameters up to 12 inches can be measured and certified to 1/10 Wave P-V or better.  All certifications are fully traceable to NIST and are in full compliance with ISO9001. 

Optical Flat in rough shape?  After years of use, test flats typically show signs of deterioration such as scratches, pits, and worn areas.  We can help!  Let our polishing department rework your test flat back to near new condition.
