Our SHD cold mirrors provide excellent optical reflection for VIS-wavelengths while offering high transmission of greater than 90% for infrared light up to 2500 nm. They are ideal for extracting the cold visible light from a beam path and removing the thermal energy while maintaining high image quality. We designed the dichroic coating of the SHD mirrors to reflect at an angle of 45° and transmit the infrared radiation at 0° related to the incident light beam.

SHD cold mirrors feature high optical quality. Hence, in addition to the primary use as a cold mirror, the SHD can also merge visible with infrared light or laser beams. As well, our SHD cold mirrors work as efficient and cost-effective laser mirrors for visible light. The dielectric construction ensures permanent resistance to thermal load and moisture. Premium-grade borosilicate glass substrates enable the SHD cold mirrors to work at increased operating temperatures.

We also produce customized cold mirror optics. We can modify the layer system concerning reflection-area, angle of incidence, cut-on, cut-off wavelengths, damage threshold, and spectral operating range on a batch basis. If you need support with your customized cold mirror design, please use our inquiry form or send an email with your detailed requirements.
