Bandpass Filter

  • Introduction

Bandpass Filter

Band pass filter can separate a band of monochromatic light, the ideal transmittance of band-pass filter through the bandwidth is 100%, while the actual band-pass filter pass band is not the ideal square. The actual band-pass filter generally has a center wavelength λ0, a transmittance T0, a half width of the pass band (FWHM, a distance between two positions where the transmittance in the pass band is half the peak transmittance), the cutoff range and other key parameters to describe.

Band pass filter

Band-pass filter is divided into narrow-band filter and broadband filter.

In general, a very narrow bandwidth or high cut-off steepness will make the product more difficult to process; meanwhile the pass band transmittance and cut-off depth is also a contradictory indicator

Hyperion Optics’ band-pass filters are composed of a stack of equally spaced dielectric layers. The number of layers and thicknesses are calculated with excellent cut-off depth (typically up to OD5 or higher), better steepness and a high transmittance (70% narrowband, 90% broadband).
