Optical Surfaces Ltd is a leading international supplier of high precision spectrograph optics for astronomical telescopes. Using a spectrograph enables researchers to study the chemical and physical conditions that exist through a cross-section of space. Combined with a land or space-based telescope a spectrograph can show valuable information from the spectral distribution of light from a distant astronomical object.

Benefiting from a facility, where temperatures remain constant year-round and vibration is practically non-existent, allows Optical Surfaces Ltd to produce and test demanding telescope spectrograph optics (aspheres, mirrors, prisms, lenses and flats) that stretch the limits of conventional optical fabrication techniques.
