PRESS RELEASE

BERN OPTICS ANNOUNCES SUBMILLIMETER OPTICAL MIRRORS AS SMALL AS 0.2 MM FOR USE IN PRECISION ANALYTICAL & MEDICAL DEVICES

WESTFIELD, MA, October 21, 2010 — Bern Optics, Inc. today announced the availability of submillimeter optical mirrors as small as 0.20 mm in diameter. They can be custom engineered, ground and polished in a wide variety of standard or custom shapes to micron tolerances.

Created from a variety of substrate materials, these microscopic elements – some as small as a grain of salt – can be produced as first or second surface reflectors, with curved or plano surfaces. Custom designed dielectric, metallic or hybrid coatings can be applied to all mirrors to meet the specific requirements of the application.

These precision optical mirrors are ideal for use in a variety of analytical instrumentation, as well as in endoscopic and other minimally invasive surgical devices.

Founded in 1989 by Bernd Gottschalk, Bern Optics, Inc. is fully integrated to convert raw glass into highly accurate, exotically coated optical components, from prototype to volume production. As one of the premier independent manufacturers of precision optics, the company has consistently remained in the forefront of micro-optics manufacture and fabrication.
