This sapphire filter, defined by two identical rectangular opening apertures,
is based upon an absorption function absorp=exp(L*A+C*(exp(-(B/L^2+D/L^4))))

The transmission in sapphire is only lightly demependt on temperature, but
The formular is only cheked at wavelenths between 0.5 and 14 AA (0.4 meV 0.3
The filter is for example used in the Eiger beamline at PSI to cut of high
