  Dichroic Plate Beamsplitters are used to separate or combine two different wavelength beams. They can be called as Long Wave Pass or Short Wave Pass Filters (Combiner). When the transmittance for longer wavelength range is maximized, it is called "Long Wave Pass". The "Short Wave Pass" is when the transmittance for the shorter wavelength range is maximized.
  Dichroic Plate Beamsplitters are frequently used at (near) normal or 45° incidence. The region of high reflectivity or low transmission of a dichroic beamsplitter is similar with that of a mirror.
  The transmittance for longer wavelength range is always higher than that for shorter wavelength range. So it is strongly recommend to design the optical setup to use the Long Wave Pass for the applications where the light throughput is critical.
