Convex Mirror Product Description
High-quality optical convex mirrors are available for use with light throughout the UV, VIS, and IR spectral regions. Shapeoptics offers a range of laser, flat, metal substrate, focusing, or specialty Optical Mirrors . In a multitude of reflective coating options, including Protected Aluminum, Enhanced Aluminum, Protected Silver, Protected Gold, or Dielectric.
Difference between convex and concave mirror
Convex-mirror reflects light off of the outer surface and bulges out towards the viewer. On the other hand, a concave mirror reflects light off of the inner surface of the mirror and bulges away from the viewer. A convex-mirror always forms a virtual and upright image on the right side of the mirror, no matter where the object is placed on the left side of the mirror. On the other hand, concave mirrors can form either a virtual or real images, depending on where the object is actually placed on the left side.
