Color Filter Glass Market Overview
Color filter glasses are useful for isolating specific regions of a spectrum. They transmit light within defined wavelength ranges while absorbing other undesired wavelengths. These optical bandpass filters have broad spectral bandwidths in either the ultraviolet, visible, or infrared spectrums. Color glass filters are useful for selective wavelength absorption and therefore achieve high out of band blocking. Color filter glasses have the ability to make filter curve almost independent of the angle of light. The nearly black filters absorb visible radiation. They are perfect for ultraviolet or infrared detection applications. Shortpass type color glass filter has a very low transmission in long wavelengths and high transmission in the short wavelengths. IR filters are often used in night vision and IR sensing systems.
Color Filter Glass Market Dynamics
Color filter glasses are used for all types of high technology industries including cameras/optical instruments, physical and chemical appliances, educational materials, electronic instruments, optoelectronic instruments, medical devices, optical industrial equipment, and many other industrial equipments, where they have earned a reputation for excellence. The major factor that drives the growth of the color filter glass market is their application in medical instruments.
