Parabolic Reflector Diagram

An electroformed parabolic reflector is a parabola-shaped reflective surface used to collect and direct wave energy such as light.

  • Collimates a Light Source or Focuses a Collimated Beam
  • Parabolic Profile Eliminates Spherical Aberration
  • Surface Enhancements: Optical Coatings

Electroforming Process

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.
