SHORT PASS FILTERS
SHORT WAVE EDGE FILTERS
The short pass filter is similar to the long pass filter except that the passband is at a lower wavelength than the blocking range. KG filter types exhibit high transmission in the visible range and low transmission in the IR range and are therefore used as heat absorbing filters.
KG filters display a high transmission rate in the visible spectrum. IR radiation is absorbed. Accordingly, KG filters may be used as heat absorbing filters. Depending on the application environment, short pass filters can assume the function of a band pass filter.
