SPL provides cylindrically curved metal crystal surfaces that are polished to the same roughness specification as its planar polished single crystal surfaces. Now you can save costs by not having to order multiple crystals for a range different orientations, but get all of them on one single crystal.

The choice of your material and orientation.
  • Offered exclusively for metallic elements, most common orientations:
    • Cubic (1 1 1), (1 1 0) or (1 0 0) or stepped surfaces like (1 1 11) or (1 1 7)
    • Hexagonal (0 0 0 1), (1 0 1 0) or (1 1 2 0) or stepped surfaces like (1 1 2 2) or (2 1 3 5)
  • Any azimuthal orientation to define the direction of curvature

The shape and radius of curvature of your crystal.

  • Hat shaped with flat sides, as above
  • Radius of curvature to define the total angular range:
    • 15 mm for an angular range > 30°
    • 20 mm for an angular range > 23°
    • 25 mm for an angular range > 18°
