UV-Bandpass Filters with a High Transmission Rate & Large Blocking
January 15, 2013
LASER COMPONENTS offers the right optical filter to reliably seperate UV-A, UV-B and UV-C radiation.
New UV materials make new UV filters possible: The new UV filters allow a transmission
of >80%, while at the same time suppressing scattered light up to >700 nm. This is
even achieved with a blocking factor of OD5.
Omega Optical, Inc. manufactures UV bandpass filters using a DMRS coating process.
ZrO2, which allows radiation up to 250 nm to pass, is used as the coating material.
Compared to previous products, this combination of material and coating technology
allows higher transmission rates, steeper edges, and above all the highest blocking
factor. These new filters are developed on a customer-specific basis.
