Hot Mirrors are used in applications when there is the requirement to separate visible light from heat. The hot mirror accomplishes this by reflecting the heat. The use of Borosilicate type glass allows operation in high temperatures. Operation at an AOI of 0º is preferred. The most common wavelength range for an average transmission of 85% through the hot mirror is 420 - 700nm. The reflective range for the hot mirror for R>95% is 800 - 1000nm. Additionally, R>50% from 735 - 1080nm.
