Features

  • Transmissive at UV or Visible Wavelengths
  • AR Coated for 290 - 370 nm or 350 - 700 nm
  • Ø25 mm Filter
  • Peak Transmission Greater than 90% in Specified Range
  • Easily Mounted in SM1-Compatible Mounts
  • Edge Blackening Available Upon Request

Thorlabs is pleased to offer a selection of its bandpass colored glass filters with a broadband antireflective coating designed for either the 290 - 370 nm (-UV) or 350 - 700 nm (-A) wavelength range. The broadband AR coating is deposited on both faces of a Schott® glass substrate that has been selected for its high transmission in the ultraviolet or visible. These Ø25 mm filters can be easily mounted in our manual or motorized filter wheels. They can also be mounted in our series of SM1 (1.035"-40) lens tubes.

The high-performance, multilayer, broadband -UV or -A coating deposited on each filter is designed to minimize surface reflections within the specified range, thereby increasing the amount of light transmitted within the specified wavelength region. This helps to improve measurement sensitivity under low light conditions. These coatings provide an average reflectivity that is less than 0.5% over the specified range when light is normally incident on the filter surface. Please see below for a representative transmission curve for each filter type, or refer to the Comparison tab for plots of the performance of the coated and uncoated filters.

For applications in the ultraviolet, the FGUV5-UV and FGUV11-UV are recommended for use in the 240 - 395 nm and 275 - 375 nm spectral ranges, respectively. The FGUV5-UV provides greater than 98% peak transmission within the specified range, while the FGUV11-UV features greater than 90% peak transmission and a nearly zero transmission up into the infrared. For applications at visible wavelengths, consider the FGS900-A and FGB37-A, designed for use in the 315 - 710 nm and 335 - 610 nm spectral ranges, respectively. The FGS900-A provides greater than 90% peak transmission over the visible wavelength range and suppresses wavelengths up into the infrared, while the FGB37-A provides greater than 98% peak transmission in the visible.

Several of the colored glasses used for our filters are fluorescent at certain wavelengths; for more details on how this may affect certain applications, contact Technical Support. For narrowband sources, we recommend our dielectric bandpass filters.

If an appropriate filter is not listed here, Thorlabs also provides an extended variety of uncoated bandpass colored glass filters for wavelengths extending from the ultraviolet to the infrared.

Effect of AR Coating on Transmission Properties

The bandpass colored glass filters shown on this page have been AR coated for either the 290 - 370 nm range (-UV) or the 350 - 700 nm range (-A). These filters are also available without AR coatings, but their transmission in the specified range is significantly diminished, as shown in the graphs below. At the peak transmission wavelength, the AR coatings provide an 8 - 10% increase in the total transmission.

The shaded region in each graph denotes the range over which the wavelength-dependent transmission is >50% of the peak transmission. This range is also listed in the table above.

Dear ladies and gentlemen, I am very interested in your filter FGB37-A. Unfortunately I need a slightly different size: 30 mm diameter and about 1,8 mm thickness. Is it possible to get this size. Or maybe you have a mount to compensate the diameter. Best regards André Klossek

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: We can do this as a custom. We will contact you directly for a quote.
