Semrock Manufactures the World's First 11-band Optical Filter
January 16, 2013
Rochester, NY, January 16, 2013- Semrock proudly announces the production of the world’s first 11-band filter
with steep edges within a 100nm wide spectral window. The filter has high transmission and exceptional blocking outside each of
the eleven. The unmatched spectral complexity of this 11-band filter was designed specifically to match the corresponding
formaldehyde fluorescence emission spikes over the 380-480nm wavelength range. The filter can be utilized investigate the
homogeneous charge combustion ignition (HCCI) combustion process.
This is not Semrock’s first monumental accomplishment; they were also the world’s first manufacturer of a five band filter
for multicolor fluorescence applications. Semrock is proud to provide their OEM customers with optical filter solutions that
