Optical Thin Film Filters- Applications
Optical Thin Film Filters are used in many areas from colour filters for lighting products to Biotechnology instrumentation and security screening. The applications and demands are extensive and constantly growing.
For example High Illumination intensities, weak signals and widespread use of Lasers means that filters must be environmentally stable and provide many orders of magnitude of signal to noise in order that good results may be routinely achieved. Below you can find many examples of Filter designs for a variety of applications. These are by no means comprehensive since new technologies are constantly emerging which require the design and manufacture of new Filters.
