Neutral Density Filter

Neutral Density Filter

Neutral density filters attenuate, split or combine beams in a range of irradiance ratios with little dependence on wavelength.

FOCtek offers two kinds of neutral density filters, which are neutral grey glass type filters and metallic coated type filters made of optical glass such as N-BK7, H-K9L Fused Silica and so on.

The thickness of neutral grey glass type filters determin the transmission, however, transmission is determined
by coating thickness in the metallic coated optical material type.

(6). Optical density (D) is defined as the base 10 logarithm of the reciprocal of transmittance (T):
       D=log(1/T) or T=10(-D), Besides the typical optical density listed as above, others are available upon request.
