Newport 's new V100-CP CenterPoint Mirror Mount is an application-friendly mount that holds the mirror directly above and inline with the mounting hole while maintaining a standard 1-in. optical axis height. Having the mirror's reflective surface sit on the rotation axis of the mounting post enables quick research setups without the need for additional adapter plates. If the optical path needs to change, a simple rotation can steer the reflected beam well over 270 degrees. The compact, clear quadrant mirror mount is English or Metric mounting compatible, easy to integrate into a custom design, and can be modified with hex screws for OEM applications. In high-density layouts, the V100-CPs can be positioned on adjacent table mounting holes which are only 1 in. apart.

PRESS RELEASE

Newport's New Mirror Mount Enables Faster Setups

Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in lasers and photonic solutions, announces the new V100-CP CenterPoint™ Mirror Mount. This application-friendly mount holds the mirror directly above and inline with the mounting hole while maintaining a standard 1-inch optical axis height. Having the mirror's reflective surface sit on the rotation axis of the mounting post enables quick research setups without the need for additional adaptor plates. If the optical path needs to change, a simple rotation can steer the reflected beam well over 270 degrees.

Rick Sebastian, Product Manager for Newport's Optomechanics and Manual Positioning, notes, "We are pleased to offer this new economical product, developed for both research and OEM applications. Locating the mirror at the intersection of the optical and rotation axes provides many advantages to the user and includes saving valuable setup time and costs. For OEM engineers, the design process goes much faster simply because the mounting hole is always directly below the optical axis."

The compact, clear quadrant mirror mount is English or Metric mounting compatible, easy to integrate into a custom design, and can be modified with hex screws for OEM applications. In high-density layouts, the V100-CPs can be conveniently positioned on adjacent table mounting holes which are only 1-inch apart. Assemblies using this innovative mirror mount will require fewer standard parts, thereby cutting costs for a variety of optical tools, such as periscopes, delay lines, and polarizer inverters.
