BARRINGTON, N.J., Aug. 6, 2015 — TECHSPEC right angle mirrors from Edmund Optics Inc. feature enhanced aluminum, protected silver and protected gold metallic coatings. The enhanced aluminum coating is a multilayer dielectric film on top of aluminum to enhance reflectance in the visible wavelength region. Protected gold coatings are ideal for IR and near-infrared applications, providing 96 percent reflectivity from 750 to 1500 nm. Gold coatings are offered with a silicon monoxide overcoat for a more durable finish and ease of handling. Protected silver coatings deliver reflectivity of greater than 99 percent from 500 to 800 nm, ideal for broadband sources that span multiple spectra. A protective coating reduces any silver tarnishing and is ideally suited for low-humidity environments. Reflecting incident light at 90°, the mirrors are ideal for applications requiring precision alignment and high performance, including system alignment.
