Spherical Reflector Diagram
A spherical reflector is light control device whose curve is based off the geometry of a circle.
- Spherical Profile Eliminates Spherical Aberration
- Ideal for Highly Divergent Light Sources
- Surface Enhancements: Optical Coatings
Optiforms Spherical Reflectors
Stock reflectors are coated with electro-deposited bright rhodium.
*F = Flange
*NV = No Vertex

The electroforming manufacturing method generates an exact copy via replication in metal (typically nickel) of a master mandrel by a process called electrodeposition. Specific benefits of electroforming are low unit costs, exact atomic scale, repeatability and excellent process control for quality. Often times the design engineer will find electroforming is preferred for many applications requiring a complex true geometric shape form factor, thin walls, and high repeatability.
