Optical Filters

Coated filter optics and optical glass filters

Our company manufactures and supplies all types of optical filters for industry and science. Whether you need coloured glass filters, coated filters or customer-specific optical filters, in most cases we can provide a good solution for your optical task.

Optical filters are used to block, transmit, reflect or filter out a defined light wavelength range. The principle of filter optics can be dichroic, absorbing or transmitting. Filter optics can also be used as bandpass, short pass, long pass, notch or attenuation filters.

Optical filter components are mainly found in illumination systems, laser applications, image processing, camera applications, in spectroscopy, for optical analysis systems, and similar applications. Below you will find the most popular and constantly available filters for various optical applications from our extensive manufacturing program. Please follow the links for more details and specifications:

Optical filters made from SCHOTT colored glasses

More than 100 different high quality optical color glass filter materials from SCHOTT for various applications and wavelengths from stock. Our extensive SCHOTT-filter program includes short pass, long pass, bandpass, neutral density, and color filters as well as conversion filters. This type of filter optics are based on absorption. more...


Neutral Density Filters, Grey Filters, Optical Density Filters

NG 1, NG 3, NG 4, NG 9, NG 10, NG 11 & NG 12 SCHOTT-filters attenuate incident light with a defined level. The filter materials are neutral in color and broadband in transmission. more...


Heat Reflection Filters (Heat Reflecting Hot Mirrors) SIR Series

Our dielectric heat reflection SIR has a dichroic filter coating. It is highly transparent to visible light and effectively blocks the infrared band up to a wavelength of approx. 1100nm. more...


Heat Reflecting Filters with extended blocking range, SIR-IR Series

The SIR-IR filters features a high transmission in the visible and a broad band blocking of infrared wavelengths. The dichroic filter system represents the best possible compromise in terms of maximum blocking bandwidth and high visible transmission. view more...


Cold Light Filters, SHD-Series

Our dichroic SHD cold light filter reflects the visible light of a light beam by 45° while it simultaneously transmits infrared radiation up to 2500 nm at i = 0°. This is the function principle of a dichroic beamsplitter. view more...


Heat-Absorbing Filters KG1-KG5

Heat-absorbing filters made of SCHOTT KG-filter glasses allow the visible wavelength range to pass through while absorbing the heat radiation of a light source. Such heat protection filters operate largely independently of the angle of incidence. view more...
