Fluorescence Filters

Fluorescence Filters

Our fluorescence filters have high transmission, with transmittance higher than 85 % in UV, and larger than 90% in visible. (See spectra at the right, measured at wafer level before AR is applied on the back). As shown in the data sheet, we are able to make those fluorescence filters with very good uniformity. For instance, the centre wavelength variation over a 3” x 3” wafer is less than 0.5nm. This will result in much better image, especially in a system with large NA an large beam size

Laser Line Filters

Laser Line Filters

  • High transmission: >90%
  • Steep slope (roll-off to 5OD): <1% of laser wavelength
  • Wide blocking range (customer application specific)
  • Negligible temperature dependence of laser wavelength
  • Hard dielectric coating with superior environmental reliability and durability (for telecom application, meeting Telecordia standards)

Raman Filters

Raman Filters

  • Using high purity optical substrates with low Raman effect (data available upon request)
  • High OD laser-line blocking for maximum laser rejection (>6OD)
  • Steep slopes to enable measuring the small Raman shifts (5OD slope: BPF: <4nm; LPF <10nm; 45deg dichroic: <10nm)
  • High transmittance in the pass band (>90%)
  • Typical 6OD Blocking Range: 0.85λ0 ~ 1.15λ0
  • High laser damage threshold (>20J/cm2 @ 532nm)
  • Superior environmental reliability
