Availability: eSource Optics VUV-UV Mirrors are supplied on a per order basis; lead-time is typically within ~3-4 weeks.

All eSource Optics broadband VUV-UV Al & MgF2 mirror coatings offer excellent reflectance properties at the specific VUV-UV wavelengths listed below, with high average broadband reflectance throughout the Visible to NIR.  High Reflectance broadband VUV-UV mirror coatings are specifically designed for use in a variety of VUV-UV instrument and research applications including VUV-UV-based analytical instrumentation, DUV spectrophotometers & Ellipsometers.  For the VUV to UV wavelength region, we supply % Reflectance curves with every Lot of mirrors supplied.  All eSource Optics VUV-UV Mirrors are measured on a Vacuum Spectrophotometer system capable of measuring VUV-UV reflectance as short as 120nm. The system is based on a calibrated Model VM-502 0.2 Meter Vacuum Monochromator with VUV enhanced 1200g/mm grating & Deuterium light source for very accurate VUV to UV  wavelength measurements. 

eSource Optics also offers standard VUV-UV Spherical Plano-Concave Mirrors  with our High Reflectance broadband VUV-UV mirror coatings listed above on 0.5" (12.7mm), 1.0" (25.4mm) & 2" Diameter (50.8mm) Plano-Concave Spherical Mirror substrates with Concave Radii from 0.25 Meter up to 5.0 Meter.   Custom sizes and Radii also available, including custom Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors.
