Find the Best Mirror for Your Application

Why are so many different models of mirrors found in biological optics setups, and how do you know which mirror to purchase for a specific purpose? Applications Scientist, Michael Delay, PhD, seeks to answer these questions in his white paper titled, “Practical Aspects of Mirror Usage in Optical Systems for Biology.” This paper provides practical, useful information on the now ubiquitous flat dielectric mirror. It also outlines some of the key design considerations and specifications to consider when selecting the appropriate flat mirror for an optical system used in biology.
