Modern hard coated optical thin film filters are nearly infinitely flexible in capability. Single band, multiband, dichroic tilted filters are all available with high transmission and excellent blocking. However, due to their complex nature and diverse end-use applications, thin film optical filters have always been a challenge to specify. Guidelines presented in this paper on how to specify key attributes, while also optimizing the cost, are meant to help the designer with selecting specifications.
