Circular Variable Neutral Density Filters (CVND)

Circular Variable Neutral Density Filters (CVND)

Circular Variable Filters (UV-VIS-IR) are filter wheels that linearly attenuate light as the filter is rotated. As the filter rotates, the beam intensity is customized due to the density variation of a gradient metallic coating around the filter. These filters are fully customizable in optical density gradient function, transmission gradient function, substrate type, coating materials, and size to meet customer requirements. Densities can be supplied as a standard linear or a customized gradient function.

Custom sizes and densities are available upon request.
