REO has launched linearly variable bandpass and edge filters for
applications in spectrometry and temperature sensing. In these variable response
coatings, the center wavelength of operation changes with position in a linear manner
over the surface of the part. In the past, high manufacturing costs for these kinds
of filters have limited their use to a few specialized applications. The company’s
volume-scalable technology enables cost-effective production of linearly variable
filters over a wide range of sizes. Bandpass filters are available for operation
in the visible (380 to 760 nm), the near-infrared (600 to 1100 nm) and the mid-infrared
(1.3 to 2.6 μm) spectral ranges. Nominal bandwidth is 1% full width half maximum
of the center wavelength, with peak transmission of 60% and linearity of ±0.5%.
Short- and long-wave-pass edge filters also are available over the same spectral
ranges and substrate sizes.
