Optical Filter Glass
Aviation, night vision and security
Surveillance systems, night vision technology and cockpit controls and displays are invaluable tools in the defense and security fields. They depend on optical filter glasses to achieve a clearer, more realistic view of target areas.
Achieving accurate results from cameras and other imaging devices depends on a choice of optical filter glasses. For instance, digital imaging requires NIR filters for accurate color recognition, while attenuation of some wavelengths can sometimes only be achieved by using a neutral density filter.
Analytics, metrology and life science
Bioanalytics, chemistry, research and medical analytics use a wide range of optical sensors that require a specific selection of the spectrum. Optical filters ensure that all unwanted light is absorbed and our filters provide the perfect signal-to-noise ratio.
Genome and DNA
In DNA sequencing, the DNA components are labelled with fluorescent dyes that glow in different colors under UV light. Gaining accurate images of DNA requires carrier plates that allow UV light to pass through and block the visible light. These carrier plates are often made using substrates of UV-Bandpass glass.
A range of industry equipment uses lasers and optical sensors to shape and control a number of different products. The function and safety of the these processes require selective bandpass and attenuation filters.
