Materion ProIRTM Filters Allow Rapid R&D Prototyping

January 30, 2017

In-stock Filters Offer Superior Spectral Performance

WESTFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Materion Precision Optics, a Materion Corporation (NYSE:MTRN) business, is announcing a new line of ProIRTM filters which will be offered in a range of wavelengths to meet individual customer needs. There is a growing demand in the infrared sensing market to quickly turnaround state-of-the-art high performance prototypes at low cost and to ensure a timely product launch. Because ProIR filters are available "off-the-shelf," they are a cost-effective means to faster prototyping for existing and emerging applications.

Available in Range of Wavelengths

Customers will now have the option to select from in-stock ProIR filters in a broad range of wavelengths from the mid-wave through long-wave IR (see table below). These filters deliver superior coating durability and spectral performance when coupled to a detector. As another available option, if the customer's requirements cannot be met using stock materials, Materion can also produce customized design solutions.
