Searching for the right optical filters can be tedious requiring a manual comparison between the various vendors’ websites and catalogs.
Conventional search engines, such as Google and Bing, provide limited information regarding the characteristics and parameters of the optical filters and they have no data on their spectral response.
Some filter vendors do provide the optical filters’ spectral response but searching for the most appropriate spectral response curve still requires visualization rather than an accurate metric.
3DOptix now offers a unique discovery platform for optical filters: the Filter Finder tool. This new tool provides the best match for any required spectral response so you can easily find the right optical filter for your needs.
The 3DOptix database includes the spectral curves of thousands of filter coatings, collected from many vendors. The tool includes different types of filter searches: BandPass Filters, LongPass Filters, ShortPass Filters, Notch Filters and Customized Filters. In each figure below, we see the best six matches (each one with the relevant correlation fit value) for the requested spectral response.
