Congrats to Shahid Haider of the University of Waterloo – 2014 Norman Edmund Inspiration Award Winner!

 

Reflective Objectives are used in microscopy applications that require chromatic correction over broad spectral ranges. Reflective Objectives are microscope objectives that use two mirrors to form an image or focus a laser in a variety of imaging or laser applications. Reflective Objectives are high magnification solutions to applications in the ultraviolet, visible, or infrared. Reflective Objectives can also be coated for additional performance over a specific wavelength range or laser line.

Edmund Optics offers a variety of Reflective Objectives. Edmund Optics’ ReflX Objectives are available for a range of imaging or focusing applications. TECHSPEC ReflX™ Objectives are available in infinity-corrected or finite-conjugate designs. Typically, finite-conjugate objectives are used in imaging applications, while infinity-corrected objects are used in laser focusing. Additionally, TECHSPEC ReflX™ Objectives are coated for performance in the deep ultraviolet, ultraviolet, visible, or infrared. TECHSPEC Adjustable ReflX™ Objectives allow the centration of the internal mirrors to be adjusted, extended their operating life. TECHSPEC High Performance ReflX™ Objectives feature a tapered mechanical design, with a ¼λ peak-to-valley transmitted wavefront.
