FEATURED COMPANY
www.chroma.com
Company Profile
Chroma Technology Corp. is a
manufacturer of interference
filters for the ultra-violet, visible
and near-infrared portions of the
spectrum, including bandpass,
multiple bandpass, and long and
short pass filters, as well as
beamsplitters, dichroic mirrors
and laser rejection filters. We
specialize in precision spectral
control, including extra high
signal-to-noise ratio filters and
those with rapid cut-on and cutoff
profiles. The manufacturing
process involves precisely
depositing, in a vacuum,
extremely thin layers of two or
more materials on a glass or
similarly transparent substrate.
Handbook
This guide is a compilation of the
principles and know-how that
the engineers at Chroma
Technology Corp use to design
filters for a variety of
fluorescence microscopes and
applications, including wide-field
microscopes, confocal
microscopes, and applications
involving simultaneous detection
of multiple fluorescent probes.
Also included is information on
the terms used to describe and
specify optical filters and
practical information on how
filters can affect the optical
alignment of a microscope.

GFP
Catalog
The GFP brochure describes most of the filter sets that we have developed for viewing and imaging the various
GFP mutants. For each filter set we have provided a spectral trace and, when applicable, a note on the unique
quality of that set. Chroma’s filter designs will keep pace with the rapidly emerging applications. Please contact us
if our filter set lists do not contain the combination that you require.

Astronomy
Catalog
Capability Brochure PDF
Chroma has been manufacturing filter for Astronomy application for more than a dozen years. We have made these
filters to customer specifications for end users and/or resellers worldwide for amateur and research applications.
