A Optical Filter will use for selectively transmit light of different wavelengths. Optical Filters are used to control the spectral content of a light beam, attenuate unwanted light and pass wanted light.

NQW GmbH provides a diverse range of wavelength selective coatings, including bandpass filters, long wave and short wave pass filters and notch filters. Filters are also often described by their function, as well as their structure.
