SCHOTT Filters

Glass filter optics made of SCHOTT color glass

Optics made of SCHOTT color glass filter materials are used in numerous scientific and industrial applications. This type of optical filter became an industrial standard a long time ago. Schott filter optics smallSCHOTT optical glass filters are used for various technical applications and also are prevalent in science and research. Our delivery program of color glass filters that we manufacture from raw filter glass coming in rolled sheets or as block glass contains nearly all available optical glass filter materials SCHOTT produces. Hence, more than 100 different types of high-quality colored optical glass filters for various applications are at your constant disposal. Please find the transmission spectra of most optical glass filter materials in the tables on this website.

Individual SCHOTT Filter Curve Calculation

Our online calculator for all SCHOTT filters

Our calculation program for the transmission of all available optical glass filters made of raw colored glass from SCHOTT allows you to calculate individual filter curves with free input of the filter thickness and spectral range. You can view the pure transmission and the spectral light transmission, including reflection losses in a graph, and you can save it as a download.

 

Especially interesting for all NG materials:

Convert transmission to optical density online

Use our online app to convert from optical density to transmission and vice versa. It is a helpful tool for selecting the appropriate neutral density filter material and similar components based on SCHOTT NG Neutral Density Filters.

 

Specifications

 

Thicknesses and Dimensions

All polished SCHOTT filter optics are made of raw material in the form of unpolished sheets. Hence, there are no standard thicknesses, and all filters must be ground and polished to thickness.

However, due to our manufacturing capabilities, quick delivery (typically 1-2 weeks) is possible for filter thicknesses of 1 mm, 2 mm, or 3 mm up to a diameter of 49 mm or, for square parts, up to 50 mm x 50 mm. If required, please send us your inquiry, and you will receive our quotation immediately.

  • Dimensions max. 165 mm x 165 mm
    (For large quantities, larger dimensions are also possible depending on the material)
  • Minimum thickness of 0,5 mm
  • Maximum thickness up to 10 mm
    (depending on material)

The filter glasses marked with an asterisk "*" are no longer produced. You should no longer develop new products based on these colored glass filters unless you need substantial quantities of material to justify a dedicated melting campaign. There may be remaining stock of the discontinued glass filters available.

Manufacturing Capabilities

We can fabricate all listed color glass filters Blue optical glass filter to create optics for your specific requirements. Additional coatings, cemented filter combinations, assemblies of different colored glass filters with glass substrates, thermal tempering, or CNC-manufacturing of complex components are within our capabilities and part of our daily optics production. Additional optical, thermal, and mechanical material specifications of all colored glass filters are available on request.
