A dichroic mirror/beamsplitter functions as a 50:50 beamsplitter at its design wavelength, known as the cutoff wavelength. Thorlabs' DMLP900R Longpass Dichroic Mirror/Beamsplitter has a 900 nm cutoff wavelength and provides >90% average reflection from 400 - 872 nm and >90% average transmission from 932 - 1300 nm. It has a 25 mm x 36 mm size and is designed for use at a 45° incident angle.
Our dichroic mirrors/beamsplitters feature a dichroic coating on one surface and an antireflection coating on the opposing surface. The surface with the dichroic coating is engraved with the part number.
Dichroic mirrors/beamsplitters can be used to combine a beam that has a wavelength (or wavelength range) shorter than the design wavelength with a beam that has a wavelength (or wavelength range) longer than the design wavelength while minimizing intensity losses. Alternatively, spatially overlapping beams of different colors can be split with a single optic. This feature is commonly used in fluorescence microscopy to prevent light of the excitation wavelength from reaching the imaging detector.
