1550 AR applied on our Solaris™ acrylic solution provides a filter transmission up to 98% in the 1550nm range combined with only 0.5% reflectance (double-sided measurement).
The topcoat is hydrophobic and abrasion-resistant, and the acrylic base material makes the filter lightweight and much more impact-resistant than glass. These properties make 1550 AR perfect for filter and cover lens solutions in 1550nm LIDAR applications.
Furthermore, the hydrophobic topcoat repels water, ensuring minimum signal distortion (both emitter and detector).
1550 AR is for applications such as ‘eye-safe’ infrared laser rangefinders using 1550nm lasers and other portable or airborne LIDAR devices for robotics, archaeology, geology, military, or surveying purposes.
We try to provide you as much information as possible, but it’s hard to provide all information in just one page.
There are a lot of exceptions depending on what features you need for your application. Because of these exceptions, we are more than happy to talk with you about our options.
We are – after all – experts when it comes to optical filter and cover glass solutions.
