OptiLayer:  Your Partner in Design and Post-Production Characterization of Optical Coatings



Beamsplitters separate incident light into two components consisting of a reflected and a transmitted band. Beamsplitters is designed so to achieve a specified reflectance and transmittance over a spectral range of interest. Beamsplitters are used also to separate two polarizations. Typically the splitter is situated in a 45°-angle to the incident beam

Reflectance and transmittance of neutral beamsplitters are to be close to a constant in a specified spectral range. Values of reflectance and transmittance can be expressed in percentage, for example, 50% and 50%, 30% and 70% and so on.



This beamsplitter operates in the spectral range from 400 to 800 nm.

Target specifications: T=R=50% (unpolarized light)

Materials: TiO2/SiO2, Glass substrate

OptiLayer allows designing beamsplitters exhibiting any specified ratio T:R, for example, T=30% and R=70% (left pane) or T=70% and R=30% (right pane). Spectral range of interest can be, for example, from 450 to 650 nm and AOI equal to 45 degrees.
