Positive dispersion mirrors (PD, IR)

PD are a series of mirrors which provide positive GDD with the same sign of GDD as most materials in the UV-VIS-NIR ranges. We categorize positive dispersion mirrors separately due to their importance. Positively chirped mirrors can be used for pulse compression in chirped-pulse amplifier systems, e. g. in a hybrid prism/mirror compressor set-up. In these applications mirrors with positive GDD are needed. PD mirrors are custom-designed according to your specifications regarding dispersion and reflectivity characteristics.
