Hi All,

Searched Google, Thorlabs, and Edmund.  Does anyone know where I can find a
mirrored glass slide?

Thanks

Gary,

How much, if any, does the EM lab at Princeton charge? You can make your own mirrored slides with metal evaporation in a vacuum evaporator, or in a sputter coater. 100% reflectance could be an issue, as that requires a thick coat of metal (time depends on metal and etc.), but you could work out the coating rate and produce mirrors that reflect X% and transmit 100-X%, “X” as needed (like 50/50 or 20/80, etc.).

Are you looking for a front surface mirror, also called "first surface
mirror?  Ore are you concerned about the dimensions.  It is not that
difficult to cut glass.  Hee's a listing from Edmunds Optical.

Hi Gary,
long time ago I used to make my own with a standard silvering solution
(silver nitrate and some reducing agent), but those were not very good as
first surface mirrors. It worked much better to silver a coverslip and glue
it to a glass slide with the silver 'inside'. Still it did not last very
long... Protected Al is much better, of course.


Also, neither glass slides nor coverslips are flat, so it is useless for
anything else than reflecting a laser beam back to a microscope objective...

When I need a cheap mirror for experiments, I look into some old data
projector (dielectric mirrors and filters) or a flatbed scanner (very good
first surface metallic mirrors), though the dimensions are quite different
from a glass slide (usually much thicker and narrower).

Best, zdenek

Hi All,

Thanks for the suggestions.  All set.  Doesn't need to be crazy precise.

https://opticalmirror.com/

This place lets you order them in any size you want. Slide dimensions
(3"x1"x1mm) is $20 for 1, less if you order more.

Hello:

Leica can supply a mirrored coverslip mounted in a 1x3 inch carrier. In
this way, you would be imaging the mirror surface through the coverslip and
thereby getting the best optical performance. Leica uses this to align the
pinhole in their confocal systems. However I would remind everyone that
this is not a good way to characterize the optical sectioning ability of a
microscope - a thin fluorescent film should be used instead.

best wishes,
Guy Hagen
