Mirror and Silicon Blocks Refurbishment

Mirror and Silicon Blocks Refurbishment

The quality of x-ray mirrors produced today is significantly better than that which was available 10 years ago. Consequently, there are many large optics installed worldwide with slope and roughness characteristics that can be improved. In addition mirror coatings degrade (surface contamination) over time resulting in performance reduction.

We offer a refurbishment service for x-ray mirrors, to provide customers with an optics upgrade path that doesn't require a complete new mirror purchase. This involves stripping off old coatings and replacing the coating.

Furthermore we offer to repolish, and then recoat, existing mirrors to improve slope errors and surface roughness. This makes it a practical and cost effective solution to consider refurbishing a mirror during a short shutdown.

 

Our customers are the large Synchrotron facilities around the globe like ESRF, Soleil, Desy, …

The semiconductor industry is manufacturing chips that are included in all electronic devices, telephones, computer, television, watch industries, optics, photonics, micro sensors, MEMS, etc… 

To manufacture those devices in mass production, the starting raw material has been silicon since more than 45 years. Today, new materials are arriving in this industry, but silicon is still in first position.
