Right Angle Prism Mirrors
Right Angle Prism Mirrors are also known as hypotenuse-coated right-angle prism mirrors, which are also known as turning mirrors. It implements total internal reflection (TIR) by using its hypotenuse face. Each mirror's hypotenuse is coated with either a broadband dielectric, metallic, or laser line coating. They are ideal for alignment and its front surface mirror reflects light at 90 degrees. They are used for beam steering or as a knife edge to separate and combine beams.
Broadband Dielectric Mirrors are designed with excellent reflection over multiple wavelengths. They are very durable and provide a good combination of performance and value over a very broad spectral range and are relatively insensitive to angle of incidence and polarization.
Metallic coated mirrors consist of a good combination of performance and value for general purpose applications. They operate over a very broad spectral range from UV to visible, and visible to near – and mid-IR. They are relatively insensitive to angle of incidence and polarization, and their relatively wide bandwidth and high reflectivity makes them ideal for applications like spectroscopy.
Laser Line coated mirrors are designed with specific laser types or wavelengths and used for beam-steering in demanding laser applications. Their reflectivity is more than 99%, and its coating is very durable which makes it easier to clean and more resistant to laser damage. It has been optimized for high reflectance at distinct wavelengths.
