Omega Optical’s (Brattleboro, VT) newly-launched RapidBand stock program provides fast delivery for hundreds of bandpass filter combinations in a standard 25 mm diameter ring that is only 3.5 mm thick. RapidBand filters are constructed by combining longpass and shortpass edges produced at 10 nm increments from 400 nm to 700 nm. These are assembled in a proprietary air-spaced ring designed to meet the size and quality requirements for many optical systems. Longpass and shortpass edge filters can also be ordered as RapidEdge filters, and are mounted in the same 25 mm ring.

RapidBand filters are manufactured with durable plasmaassisted reactive magnetron sputtered coatings, and will have 90% typical transmission, OD5 average (OD4 minimum) blocking from UV-1100nm for silicon detectors, a minimum 20.9 mm clear aperture, and ¼ TWD @ 633 nm.
