Standard long wave pass filters

from Andover

Long wave pass filters provide a sharp cutoff below a particular wavelength. Often used for order sorting, they isolate broad regions of the spectrum, simultaneously providing high transmission of desired energy, and deep rejection of unwanted energy.

Constructed of hard, durable first-surface dielectric coatings on optical-quality IRtransmitting substrates, these filters will withstand normal cleaning and handling associated with any high-quality optical component.

For convenience, we offer the filters in two standard sizes: 25mm and 50mm dia. In addition, we offer custom sizes and shapes, as well as custom optical characteristics. Contact our expoert on the right for a quotation.

Custom IR Long Wave Pass Filters

Andover can design and fabricate long pass and short pass filters to suit your particular requirements. Every phase of the process is performed in-house, including thin-film coating design, mechanical design, substrate fabrication and coating, inspection, and environmental testing.

We can coat a variety of substrate materials, including Germanium, Sapphire, Silicon, Zinc Sulfide, and Zinc Selenide.
