Hot Mirrors: Filters for High Reflections also in the IR

Cold despite Heat Radiation

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) Hot mirrors are designed to transmit visible light and simultaneously minimize the infiltration of heat into the system. Standard hot mirrors relflect more poorly the further you go into the infrared wavelength range.

LASER COMPONENTS introduces the ITO coated filters from Omega Optical that achieve a significant improvement in the IR with the ITO material system. Here indium oxide (In2O3) and tin oxide (SnO) are sputtered in an alternating mixing ratio. This combination offers a high transmission in the Vis, a reflection value of R>80% up to the long-wave IR region, and a good electrical conductivity.

ITO coatings can be used for displays and touchscreens. This coating can also be used for EMC protection in optoelectronic components.
