Knight Optical’s Dichroic Longpass Filters for Fluorescence Microscopy

18 Jan 2021

With an extensive range of cost-effective Dichroic Longpass Filters available, Knight Optical can meet the needs of a variety of diverse applications. Supplied either from stock (in standard 12.5mm and 25mm diameters or 50mm square types) or as a custom-made component (in sizes and shapes suitable for your project), Knight Optical's premium-quality Dichroic Longpass Filters are commonly specified for use within high-precision Fluorescence Microscopy applications.

Our Dichroic Longpass Filters are designed to transmit wavelengths longer than the filter’s ‘cut-on’ and to block bands below that point. Commonly manufactured for bands between 300-1200nm, these filters are typically specified with a 0° Angle of Incidence (AOI). Furthermore, our Dichroic Longpass Filters can also be used as beam combiners as a beamsplitter, and when used in conjunction with a shortpass filter, can also make a bandpass filter.

Typical specs:

Material: Borosilicate, Soda-Lime Glass

Dimensional tolerances:  ±0.1mm 

Wavelength range: CWL between 300-1200nm 

Wavelength accuracy: ± 5nm 

Peak transmission: > 95% @ CWL

Full width at half maximum (FWHM): Dependent on type
