Broadband hot mirrors

Share this on social media:

Laser Components has announced that its broadband hot mirrors can now block an increased amount of unwanted IR light. By adding a transparent conducting oxide layer to the rear surface of a standard hot mirror, the reflected wavelength range can be extended far into the infrared region. With excellent transmission in the visible spectrum, reflectance in the NIR and a reflectance >80 per cent average in the mid to far IR, the mirrors ensure systems don't overheat.
