Metallic Coated Filters provide uniform attenuation across a wide spectral range. Esco utilizes a fused silica substrate with a precision metallic coating (Inconel).  The film is comprised of a very hard alloy material, resistant to aging under normal conditions. Esco offers two types of Metallic Coated Filters:

  • BK7 Optical Glass, which is utilized in the visible spectrum (400- 700nm) 
  • Fused Sillica, where UV substrates allow for an even attenuation from 200-700nm

Advantages of Metallic Coated Neutral Density Filters include:

  • Coating on fused silica allows controlled attenuation in the UV
  • Coating provides attenuation with greater linearity over a wide spectral range.
  • Coating can handle higher intensity light sources because part of the beam is reflected, rather than absorbed
