OPTICA ‘ s filter are designed for operation at 23 degrees Celsius, these filters can be used throughout the temperature range of -50 to +100 degrees Celsius as long as thermal shock is avoided.

Color Glass Filter

Color glass filters stands out due to its selective absorption in the visible wavelength range. The filters appear to be colored if their filter effect lies within the visible light spectrum. Optica, one of the leading filter glass manufacturers with a wide product range.


Our range of glass filters with more than 60 types includes the following filter types in the visible wavelength range from 200 nm upwards:

• Band pass filters, which allow required ranges to pass through selectively
• Long pass filters, which block unwanted shorter wave ranges
• Short pass filters, which block unwanted longer wave ranges

Color Glass Bandpass Filter are often used for longpass and bandpass filters, coated substrate cemented with color glass which have different absorption and transmission properties across the spectrum.

Long pass and short pass filters are two distinct types of specialized optical filters. Long pass filters transmit electromagnetic radiation with long wavelengths while blocking shorter wavelengths. Short pass filters do the opposite: they pass short wavelengths and block longer ones. Both types are sometimes grouped as edge filters (referring to the steep cut-on and cut-off between transmission and rejection) or barrier filters (due to the rejection of large sections of long or short wavelengths).

Cold Mirror is used to in certain applications where it is desirable to reflect visible light, but transmit the IR (heat energy) to replace the Hot Mirror.




Long Pass Filter

Long Pass Filters Are Frequently Employed In Fluorescent Spectroscopy. Fluorescence, By Definition, Is The Emission Of Light By A Substance That Has Absorbed Electromagnetic Radiation; The Specific Light Wavelengths Absorbed Are Termed Excitation Light. Because Fluorescence Emitting From An Object Typically Has Higher Wavelengths Than The Excitation Light That Caused It, Long Pass Filters Can Be Used To Pass Only Precise Fluorescence Wavelengths While Blocking Leakage From The Excitation Lamp.​

Neutral Density (ND) Filters

Neutral density (ND) filters uniformly attenuate the intensity of light over a broad spectral range. Optical Density (OD), is achieved by either absorption using glass or by a combination of absorption and reflection metallic coating. Neutral density filters can attenuate spectral regions selected from 250 to 2500nm. Optical Density  can be from 0.04 to 4.  These are additive hence ND filters can be stacked to achieve the desired OD level.
