Filters, Metallic, Coated, Neutral Density, BK-7Esco PN:
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 enviromental conditions. Esco offers two types of Metallic Coated Filters:
- BK-7 Optical Glass, which is utilized in the visible spectrum (400-700nm)
- Fused Silica, 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
