Hot Mirror Description
Hot Mirror can be used in such a system which need to split the hot of spectrum and wave band. When using the hot mirror, visible light is transmitted, and the hot part is reflected. They are typically inserted in the path of the light beam, reflecting the infrared back toward the energy source, and transmitting the cool visible light to the target.
Difference between hot mirror and cold mirror
Cold mirrors reflect visible light while allowing IR light pass through but not using it. Cold mirrors are ideal for illumination systems where high temperature lighting is not desired. Hot mirrors reflect harmful IR waveband which can produce heat, while allowing visible waveband to pass through.
Hot Mirror Applications
Optical Mirrors designed for laser applications are optimized for the given laser wavelength. Additionally, Optical Mirrors designed for lasers feature damage thresholds that are suitable for the designated laser.
