M.O.S.T.™ achieves superb optical stability, unsurpassed shock and vibration resistance and sub-arc second accuracy between optical elements.
Developed by PLX, Monolithic Optical Structure Technology (M.O.S.T.™) is a unique optical innovation that combines all of the elements of a complex optical setup into a single monolithic unit. This technology represents a significant improvement over existing systems that utilize traditional mirror mounts. Traditional mechanical mounts are inherently unstable and require constant adjustment – a true disadvantage in critical applications requiring the permanent and stable fixed positioning of optical elements. Optical engineers typically use M.O.S.T.™ monolithic assemblies in applications such as laser cavities, beam dividers, beam delivery systems, and boresighting. However, by using M.O.S.T.™ you can simplify and improve practically any lab setup you need to convert into an instrument.
