February 24, 2014, Barrington, N.J. - Edmund Optics ® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces new TECHSPEC® UV-NIR Neutral Density (ND) Filters. These versatile filters are used to attenuate light from the ultraviolet (UV) to the near-infrared (NIR) for use in a wide variety of applications.
ND Filters feature outstanding surface characteristics
TECHSPEC UV-NIR Neutral Density Filters exhibit excellent parallelism of less than 5 arcseconds with outstanding surface characteristics. They provide constant, ultra-broadband performance from 190-1700 nm. A UV-NIR Neutral Density Filter Kit, available in 12.5, 25 and 50 mm diameter sizes, includes all optical densities for maximum versatility and utility.
Stack filters to create intermediate density values
TECHSPEC UV-NIR Neutral Density Filters are ideally suited for a wide range of applications, including spectroscopy, machine vision, or ellipsometry. They are also excellent for use with low power lasers. TECHSPEC UV-NIR Neutral Density Filters can be stacked to create intermediate density values for optimal value and ease of use.
Available 18 varieties and three complete filter kits
In addition to the ND Filter Kits, TECHSPEC UV-NIR Neutral Density Filters are available in 18 different individual models, with diameters of 12.5 mm, 25 mm and 50 mm and optical densities of 0.3, 0.5, 1.0, 1.3, 1.5 and 2.0.
