Motorized Vertical Drive Optical Mounts with DC motor 8MKVDOM-1-DC are designed to minimize mount-induced wavefront distortions. In conventional mounts, a side screw tightens the mirror. Radial forces acting on the mirror induces parasitic wavefront distortion, such as astigmatism. 8MKVDOM-1-DC mirror mounts use secure 3-points mirror suspension in between frontal flat spring and the back plate. Uniformly distributed axial forces eliminate wavefront distortion. Due thermal processes on optic holding part, all metal inner tensions were removed and part makes none micro movements. These mounts are ideal for industrial applications in different optical devices (laser cavities, optical sub-assemblies, limited space applications) because of their long-term stability.

Conventional optics mounting with plastic tip fixing screw from side.

Fixed with 3 spots on flat spring. Only for 6 mm thickness optics.
Stepper motor equiped

3BPVDOM Universal Base Plate is designed for attaching Vacuum Compatible Motorized Vertical Drive Optical Mount with DC motor 8MKVDOM-1-DC and to STANDA optical tables or to another stages.
