Off-axis paraboloids, sometimes referred to off-axis parabolic mirrors or off-axis parabola, provide optical designers with an unobstructed aperture allowing complete access to the focal region as well as reducing the size and minimising the weight of a design. They are especially suitable for broadband or multiple wavelength applications due to their completely achromatic performance.
