Semrock Introduces Three New Raman Edge Filters
Rochester, NY - Semrock, Inc. announces the addition of three new ultasharp long wave pass filters optimized for Raman spectroscopy for use with 325 nm (HeCd), 473 nm (Argon-ion or doubled Nd:Yag), and 1064 nm (Nd:Yag) lasers. These highly stable and reliable thin-film filters block the laser line with an optical density >6 and yet highly trasmit the wavelengths that are only 1% longer than the laser line. This unprecedented performance is made possible by combining the very latest in ion-beam sputtering technology with Semrock's proprietary manufacturing tools. these new additions to Semrock's popular Raman edge filter family increase to eight the number of standard laser lines that benefit from this new technology.
Semrock manufactures advanced optical thin-film coatings and filters, including the BrightLine™ series of fluorescence filters, high performance filters for Raman spectroscopy, and unique laser-system optics that are setting a new standard for biomedical instrumentation, chemical process monitoring and other applications. Semrock's innovative products are built on the latest advances in optical thin-film coating technology. Founded in September 2000, Semrock is based in Rochester, New York, a well-known center of optics, and has offices in Maryland and California.
