Filter glass transmits light over a specific range of wavelengths and blocks the remainder of light. Advantages of using filter glass for optical components include:
Many filter glass options (band pass filters, long pass filters, short pass filters, neutral density filters)
Precisely controlled composition and glass melting processes
Excellent homogeneity, free from bubbles and inclusions
Filter glass can be lower cost than thin film coated filters
Filter glass can be more durable than thin film coated filters
Filter glass can be used as substrates for thin film coated filters
FILTER GLASS HAS MANY APPLICATIONS
Filter Glass is Used in Many Areas Including:
Astronomy, digital imaging (CCD), displays (CRT, LCD, FED), fiber optics, high-power laser attenuators, lighting, machine vision, medical devices, night vision, optoelectronic devices, photography, protective eyewear (ex. for X-ray technicians), spectroscopy, and telecommunications. Filter glasses can be extremely beautiful and are also used in glass art.
