Alluxa announces a new line of high performance durable hard coated, mid-IR bandpass filters and multi-bandpass filters featuring ultra-high transmission and no measurable absorption in the water band.
July 9, 2013
Alluxa Inc., a leader in high performance optical filters for the visible and NIR is pleased to introduce an extension of its next generation plasma deposition process to filters in the mid-IR spectrum.
These new mid-IR filters are deposited using Alluxa’s proprietary plasma PVD deposition technology and include narrowband, multiband, notch and edge filters. The filters offer Alluxa’s characteristic ultra-high transmission, steep slopes and square filter profiles. Another unique aspect of Alluxa’s new filter technology is an absence of absorption in the water band at 2.7um, enabling the industry’s highest transmission at every wavelength between 2.5 um and 3.0 um. In addition to high performance optical characteristics, Alluxa’s mid-IR filters have completed 10 cycles of the rigorous MIL-810G environmental testing to ensure the durability and versatility of the coatings in end use applications.
Alluxa announces a new line of ultra-flat dichroic and polychroic thin film filters that feature a flatness of less than 0.1wave RMS and transmission of greater than 95% without the need for backside compensation.

Alluxa, an emerging leader in next generation optical filters is pleased to announce the production of ultra-flat dichroic and polychroic filters with very high levels of in band transmission.
These filters are unique because they achieve flatness by eliminating the high stresses of as-deposited traditional ion-based coating process such as Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) and Ion Assisted Deposition (IAD). Alluxa’s new technique uses a novel plasma hard coating process that produces low-loss, fully dense dielectric films with essentially net zero stress on the primary coated side. Because of this process, the films do not require the lengthy additional coating time of industry standard backside compensation or require the use of thick and expensive substrates. Continue reading
Alluxa announces “Ultra-Narrow Band Filters” with less than 1 nm bandwidth and greater than 95% transmission in the passband.
October 10, 2012
Alluxa, an emerging leader in next generation optical filters is pleased to announce the production of Ultra-Narrow band filters with very high levels of in-band transmission.
According to CEO Mike Scobey “As we optimize the performance of our coating systems, we are continually striving to push the limits of production-ready filter performance like this Ultra-Narrow filter. These filters are now manufacturing ready, not simply created once as a demonstration of capability. We are excited by new products like these because they offer our customers the highest levels of performance at competitive prices.” Continue reading
