IR Mirrors are Optical Mirrors designed for enhanced reflectance of the Infrared (IR) spectrum. IR Mirrors are used in a range of applications, including optical path folding or beam steering. Edmund Optics’ Infrared Mirrors are available from the Near-Infrared (NIR) to the Longwave Infrared (LWIR). Reflection coating options include Silver, Gold, or Dielectric. Silver metallic mirror coatings, often used in broadband laser applications, offer high reflectivity from 500 – 800nm. Gold metallic mirror coatings are ideal for applications in the 750 – 1500nm wavelength range. Dielectric coatings have been designed to offer optimal reflection at common laser wavelengths.
Edmund Optics offers the world’s largest inventory of optical components, including IR Mirrors. Edmund Optics’ IR Mirrors include spherical, optical flat, parabolic, off-axis parabolic, laser diode, broadband laser, or metal Optical Mirrors. Optical flat mirrors are ideal for interferometry. Spherical or Parabolic mirrors are used in light focusing applications. Metal, laser diode, or broadband laser mirrors are ideal for Infrared (IR) laser applications.
