N05-002: Variable Neutral Density (ND) Filter
Award: Phase I and Phase II
Reynard was awarded a contract to build a highly specialized variable neutral density filter based on our in-depth design knowledge and legacy manufacturing excellence of producing these types of filters. The filter requirements included a highly precise exponential gradient function that transitioned over several decades of optic density in less than 0.2 inches, an arc function curvature of static density lines, and a narrow band pass function allowing very specific color and density of light to pass. This new ‘arc gradient’ capability adds to our full line of variable ND filters that also includes circular variable (CVND), linear variable (LVND), linear Apodizer, and radial Apodizer (Bullseye™) filters. All filters can be customized for user defined needs.
