Design details of the JAID Mirror Mount

 JAID Mirror Mount 

 JAID Mount Flexure 


The JAID Mirror Mount has been designed to be as convenient to use as traditional “kinematic” mirror mounts but with all of the features necessary to be successful for inclusion in OEM assemblies.  With inherent temperature stability, a robust locking mechanism, flexible mounting options, and pointing without beam shift; the JAID Mirror Mount is a uniquely capable mount.




The mirror substrate is pressed against three locating points on the face of the mirror by a flexure spring.  The flexure has been optimized with Finite Element Analysis to provide a predictable force directly opposing the locating points to ensure low distortion and a predictable position.

Performance of the JAID Mirror Mount when exposed to a 20 °C temperature change

*The ultimate shift in the angle of the mirror surface after the first temperature cycle (occurring after adjustment and locking) was 2 μrad after 6 hours at room temperature and ultimately 1.2 μrad after 12 additional hours.  The results of the second exposure to a temperature cycle are shown above.  The shift in angle after the second temperature cycle was 0.42 μrad after 6 hours at room temperature and 0.12 μrad after an additional 12 hours.
