A Kinematic mirror mount is a device that holds a mirror in optics research, these can be quite sophisticated devices, due to the need to be able to tip and tilt the mirror by controlled amounts, while still holding it in a precise position when it is not being adjusted. An optical mirror mount generally consists of a movable front plate which holds the mirror, and a fixed back plate with adjustment screws. Adjustment screws drive the front plate about the axes of rotation in the pitch(vertical) and yaw(horizontal) directions. An optional third actuator often enables z-axis translation.

Kinematic Maximum Aperture  Mount

This model offers a convenient mounting platform with a corner clearance for any 1 inch optics, beam splitters and other optical components. Easy to adjust the axes by two or three fine-tune thumb screw points to reduce the abrasion of optics or components. The corner clearance also reduces the incident angle and minimizes beam distortion 3 point drives are available. Suitable for optics ⌀25mm, ⌀38mm, ⌀50mm.
