Semrock BrightLine® Filters Celebrate 10 Year Anniversary

Rochester, NY – The top selling and ground-breaking Semrock brand, BrightLine fluorescence filter family, is celebrating its 10th anniversary of innovative filter design and premium performance. Semrock introduced BrightLine as the industry’s first ion-beam-sputtered hard-coated filters in 2003. The filters were a revolutionary change in performance for imaging applications, and have continued to hit innovative milestones for the past 10 years.

Since product inception in 2003, there have been a series of industry-leading innovations. Semrock was the first to commercially deploy filters with “no burn-out" durability, an ultralow-pixel-shift option, and the first pentaband filter set. With a decade of proven results, the Semrock BrightLine technological breakthroughs continue today with the production of the world’s first 11-band filter.
