Infra Red Linear Variable Filters

A Linear Variable Filter (LVF) is a single filter where the performance profile shifts gradually from one end of the filter to the other in a continuous manner, this is illustrated below for one covering the 2.5-5.0 µm range.

Vortex Optical Coatings Infra Red Linear Variable Filters

The combination of an LVF and suitable detector can replace a large number of components thus saving vast amounts in space, cost, weight and time. Vortex manufactures two stock filters for use in the infrared, one covering a range from 1.2 to 2.5 µm, a further one covers the range from 2.5 to 5 µm. We have the capability to manufacture for a wide range of detector windows and bands within this range to suit your needs and welcome the opportunity to discuss specific applications in confidence.

Properties of Vortex LVF’s

  • Stock filters of 15 mm long x 3 mm wide, the 1.2 to 2.5 µm is 1mm thick, the 
    2.5 to 5 µm version is 0.5 mm thick (tolerance= /- 0.1 mm)
  • Durable hard coatings passing Humidity, salt solution, severe abrasion, adhesion as per MIL C 48497
  • T peak, typically >60% across the band
  • Surface Quality better than 60-40 scratch dig
  • Blocking UV to 8 microns, if extended blocking is required we stock a supplementary band-pass filter to enable blocking at OD3 to extend from UV to 50 µm

Applications

LVF’s can be used in hand held spectrophotometers, multi gas detectors and any other application where a range of IR band-pass filters can be replaced with a single one.
