Paper Abstract

SCHOTT was one of the interference filters inventors starting around 1935. Based on this legacy optical bandpass filters were design, manufactured, and integrated into optical instruments in satellites. In addition a special blocking coating was developed reducing cross talk and ghost. For ground based telescopes steep-edge narrow bandpass filters with low transmitted wavefront error and about 100 mm x 100 mm size were manufactured pushing the filter design and the technology to its limits. The reached results for design and measurements will be shown on an H-alpha filter.
