Important information for customers from the EU

Please note that the Principality of Liechtenstein is not a member of the EU. For this reason, the following points must be observed:

TVA – Value Added Tax

Our prices are exclusive of VAT and will be shipped as such. I.e. concretely, you have to pay the value added tax (TVA) when importing into your country (an EU country). You can reclaim these taxes from your state.

Customs clearance – EORI number required

All companies need a so-called EORI number (Economic Operator’s Registration and Identification) to import from non-EU countries. This number is used for your identification as well as for the automated customs clearance, i.e. for the import into your country (an EU country).

The respective national issuing office of the EORI number can be found on the website of the European Union. In Germany and Austria, the EORI number is assigned by customs.

Replicated Optics

The replica technology offers a complete range of solutions for beam deflection with reflective optics.

This technology makes it possible to produce replicated mirrors in large quantities with many desirable properties that cannot be covered by glass optics.


  • Unsurpassed repeatability for serial production of mirrors, as each mirror is an exact copy of the master
  • The monolithic nature eliminates temperature stability problems.
  • Integration of mounting features into the replicated mirrors is possible
  • The possibilities for unique shapes and geometries are almost unlimited


Aluminum, beryllium, fused silica, graphite epoxy, alumina, silicon, silicon carbide, titanium, miralloy, stainless steel

Optical Coatings

  • Gold
  • Silver and others

Ellipsoidal Mirrors

Ellipsoidal mirrors can be manufactured to customer designs in a variety of mounting configurations. This simplifies both the alignment process and positioning at the best possible location in an instrument.

Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors

Off-axis parabolic mirrors with monolithically replicated optics offer consistent performance and are available with coatings for both UV-IR and deep UV up to 160 nm. Our strength: mirrors according to customer design. Standard products are also available at short notice.

Reflective Microscope Objectives

Our reflective microscope lenses are inverted cassegrains in black-shield design. They have no chromatic aberration and negligible coma, spherical aberration and astigmatism. Our standard range includes lenses with 15x and 36x magnification in 160 mm and infinite back focal lengths. Customized versions can be produced in high volumes for OEM.


Our hollow metal retroreflectors provide the retroreflection accuracy required for high precision instrumentation with the added benefit of monolithic construction and breakage resistance. A selection of standard products is available at short notice. Most of our retroreflectors are custom designed for use in FTIR instruments, laser metrology, environmental monitoring, etc.
