Optical polishing

AMOS designs and manufactures large optical components for both ground- based telescopes and space instrumentation.

Processing capacity is up 3 m diameter for mirrors, which can be ground up to 85%. Highly aspherical shapes are feasible on many materials, from classical glasses like BK7 to SiC, Zerodur, ULE, Astrositall, etc,

Performances can be closely matched to customer specifications, with microroughnesses to less than 1 nm rms.
 





 ON FOCUS - Diamond Turning

Advanced Mechanical and Optical Systems (AMOS) manufactures small optical pieces by diamond turning mainly for infrared applications but also, after post polishing, for visible or ultraviolet. Concave or convex mirrors up to 500mm can be machined with extreme asphericities....
