With recently acquired IBS chamber we can create optical filters with unrivaled laser damage thresholds. We offer custom, high performance filters available from 260-1500 nm. We provide a wide range of optical filters including bandpass filter, longpass filter, shortpass filter, thin film optical filter, and others.
Custom Optical Filters
Our optical coating engineers will review your print and design a coating based on your specifications. Everything from the optical density of the blocking band to the transmission of the pass to the cut off or center wavelength can be optimized for your requirements. All filters coated in the IBS chamber will be environmentally stable and durable.
Filters we are able to make include:
Optical Filter Manufacturing
Optical filters and coatings can be applied in various fields to transmit or reject wavelengths or the range. Currently, these are used in fields such as spectroscopy, clinical chemistry, and machine vision. However, the use of optical filters is not limited to this. To one degree or another, these continue to find new areas of application and are now used in the medical and defense industries.
Alpine Research Optics designs optical filters in a variety of shapes and materials, depending on their application. From us, you can order an optical filter for your specific project with the choice of the size you need, the substrate material, and various absorption and transmission properties of the thin-film coating. Our professionals have extremely rich experience with optical filters, optical filter optics which are very often used in the chemical and medical industries. We always strive to meet the wishes of our customers. We consider each product separately and individually approach the creation of each optical filter, depending on your needs. Therefore, each of our products is of extreme quality and meets all standards. Whether thin-film optical filters are used for longpass filters or dichroic filters, we can guarantee that it will work for your laser system.
IBS Optical Coating
In 2020, ARO acquired a cutting-edge IBS chamber. The chamber is equipped with advanced technology required to make difficult filters. The chamber’s optical monitoring system allows us to make precision filters including tight specs. The chamber is also equipped with advanced technology that allows for IBS coatings with high laser-induced damage thresholds. ARO is in the process of developing and optimizing coating recipes to maximize damage thresholds. ARO has manufactured various optic filters for semiconductor manufacturers, and we are now expanding our product offerings with our new IBS technology.
