About This Webinar
Advanced optical coating techniques are an essential requirement for the manufacturing of filters, mirrors, or beamsplitters with superior optical characteristics. Monitored control of the coating process allows optical components to be precisely matched to the requirements of imaging or purely analytic systems.

In applications such as fluorescence microscopy, parameters like edge steepness or optical blocking are factors that decisively affect the quality of the generated signal. This talk gives an overview of what filter properties users should look for and how those properties influence complexity.
