Paper Abstract

Traditionally neutral light filters are made of glass (HC6, H7, HC8, etc.). There exists thin film technology for neutral-gray filters production with the use of vacuum evaporation on transparent glass substrates. To minimize residual reflectivity it is desirable to fulfill the following relation between refraction factor n of MgF2 layer and optical conductivity Z of metal-dielectric mixture on the glass substrate: Z((lambda) ) n, where (lambda) - is a wavelength. It is shown, that to reduce dispersion of Z((lambda) ) in the visible it is necessary to use low thickness of metal layers in NTFF, that is of 3 to 5 nm.
