Retro-Reflector Arrays

Spectrum Environmental Solutions Product - Retroreflector Arrays

Retro-Reflectors & Arrays with Exceptional Orthogonality

Spectrum’s corner-cube retroreflectors are made in-house using a custom-designed staging apparatus that securely holds each first-surface flat mirror in place. Each of the 3 mirrors is fine-tuned to optimize orthogonality between them.

Once the optimal orientation is achieved, each optical flat is glued in place using an industrial-strength adhesive. A final measurement of orthogonality is performed once the adhesive has been cured.

When built in this fashion, the Spectrum corner-cubes average less than 10 arcseconds of deviation from mutual-face orthogonality and many are less than 3 arcseconds! With this level of quality, one can be assured optimal alignment of reflected radiation. Spectrum produces front-surface gold (for infrared radiation) and enhanced aluminum for (ultraviolet radiation) cubes that are then assembled into arrays to increase the reflected area.

Key Features

  • Fenceline Monitoring
  • Exceptional Orthogonality Between the Three Flat Mirrors Often Achieving Less Than 3 Arcseconds Resulting in Optimal Alignment and Longer Paths
  • Satellite-Grade Quality
  • Minimal Maintenance Required
  • Long Lifetime
  • Retro-Reflectors Commonly Don’t Require Power
