Circular variable neutral-density (CVND) filters provide continuously variable, linear attenuation of light by rotating the filter around its center. The filter can be used for white light and for lasers, or with any other source of light for which signal attenuation is required. The transmitted intensity varies as a function of the optical density.
Such filters present a cost-effective way to attenuate beam intensity for low-power laser applications. One of the main advantages of such attenuation, is that an ND filter is suitable for different wavelengths. We recommend this product for R&D institutions that work with different wavelength beams or OPA and OPO.
CVND filters can be ordered together with a handy holder that has degree indications on the side. For a high level of precision in tasks with high energy attenuation, we recommend our industrial-grade products Watt Pilot and PXP in our attenuation product line.
