Paper Abstract

The Observatorio Astrofisico de Javalambre in Spain will conduct an all-sky astronomical surveys using multi-bands, where optical filters are needed. 54 narrow bandpass (FWHM = 14.5 nm) filters will continuously populate the spectrum between 370 to 920 nm with 10.0 nm steps. Here results on 2 filters with center wavelength of 460 nm and 470 nm and blocking from 250 to 1050 nm with OD5 will be shown. The filters have a maximum transmission of larger than 85% and a transmitted wavefront error of better than λ/2 over an aperture >~ 100mm.
