A dichroic mirror/beamsplitter functions as a 50:50 beamsplitter at its design wavelength, known as the cutoff wavelength. Thorlabs' DMSP1000L Shortpass Dichroic Mirror/Beamsplitter has a 1000 nm cutoff wavelength and provides >90% average reflection from 1020 - 1550 nm and >90% average transmission from 520 - 985 nm. It has a 2" diameter 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 side is engraved with the part number and an arrow that points toward the antireflection coating.
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.
