Spectrogon AB´s filters on the Rosetta spacecraft.

Spectrogon AB (Täby, Sweden) is proud to have developed and manufactured the optical filters in the Rosetta spacecraft´s OSIRIS imaging system. The Rosetta spacecraft, orbiting comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko takes images through Spectrogon AB´s UV, VIS and NIR filters with 12 filters in the NAC and 14 filters in the WAC cameras on board.

Rosetta's OSIRIS camera instrument
The Optical, Spectroscopic, and Infrared Remote Imaging System (OSIRIS) is the main imaging system of the Rosetta spacecraft. Consisting of two cameras, the narrow-angle camera (NAC) is intended for high-resolution mapping of the nucleus, while the wide-angle camera (WAC) is optimized for mapping the gas and dust in space in the proximity of the comet.

ROSETTA wakes up and puts on it’s glasses (Made by Spectrogon!)

Wakey, Wakey! ROSETTA wakes up and puts on it’s glasses (Made by Spectrogon!)

There has been widespread media coverage in the last week of the Rosetta space probe, which was woken up on January 20th after a 31 month nap (or deep space hibernation!) for it´s coming rendezvous with Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The OSIRIS instrument is the main imaging system on the mission and will take pictures of the comet at a range of wavelengths selected by Spectrogon’s filters (it’s glasses!).

The Rosetta mission is one of the European Space Agency’s ”Cornerstone Missions” which means it is of very high importance both politically and scientifically. Spectrogon is very proud to have been chosen to manufacture the special filters for such a high profile and important mission. We have done our bit, it’s now up to Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko to put on a show for the cameras!

Spectrogon Filters Scan the Earth

Following the successful launch and testing of ESA’s Proba-V satellite, Spectrogon filters will be used to scan every inch of the Earth for the next 5 years. The Proba-V mission will monitor and map land cover and vegetation growth across the entire planet every two days. The data can be used for alerting authorities to crop failures or monitoring the spread of deserts and deforestation.
Spectrogon designed and manufactured the infrared filters for the SWIR detector and supplied them to instrument manufacturer OIP Sensor Systems.

Pricelist for uncoated windows

Many of our customers asks for uncoated windows, such as Germanium, Glass, Quartz, Sapphire and Silicon windows.
Since we use a lot of these materials in our thin film production, we carry a large stock.
Please, check our new price list for uncoated windows.
For larger quantities request a quotation.

New website launched October 21

Spectrogon launched a new website on October 21, 2011.

With a new modern layout and extended stock lists with our popular products, we hope that our customers will find www.spectrogon.com the best optical filter and diffraction grating site on the Internet.

Currently listing +850 filters and +770 spectral curves, new filters and new spectra will continuously be added.

Pulse compression gratings, expanded article list

Spectrogon now lists +200 different gratings for pulse compression in ultra-fast laser systems. Fifty new gratings were added to the web site in June 2011. Pulse Compression Gratings

Our customers can easily locate suitable gratings for their ultra-fast systems by visiting the Spectrogon web site.

Spectrogon AB is the world leader in the manufacturer of pulse compression gratings in regards to high efficiency, optical wave-front, and cosmetic quality.

The Arninge site expands

In June the construction work started to expand the thin film and grating manufacturing site in Arninge. Four hundred and eighty square meters of new office and reception area will be added to accommodate the move of administration and sales from the Täby site in December.

Spectrogon has been awarded

Spectrogon has been awarded the Optronic prize by Swedoptronics, an association within the Association of Swedish Engineering Industries.

The summary of the award: Spectrogon has a unique position in optical components, interference filters and holographic gratings. The company manufactures a wide spectrum of products within a broad wavelength range. Spectrogon has had increased turnover of 30 % from 2004 to 2006. The company has made substantial investments since 2004; and has managed to keep a good level of profitability.

Dr. Roland Jacobsson, chairman of the board of directors, accepted the award on 8 November 2007 in Skelleftea, Sweden.

Swedoptronics is a specialist trade association within the Association of Swedish Engineering Industries (Teknikforetagen). The main aim of the association is to create conditions for increased growth and profitability in the optronics industry.

New ultrasonic cleaning system

To meet our increasing need for clean substrates in the production of optical filters and holographic gratings, a new fully automated ultrasonic cleaning system has successfully been installed in our factory in Arninge, Sweden.

The new ultrasonic cleaning system will give higher throughput of extremely clean substrates, which will improve the quality of our optical products.
