Datasheet: Multispectral Filters and Patterned Filters

Spectral requirements of the filter can affect the size and positional accuracy of the features. More challenging optical filters require more layers to achieve required spectral performance. These layers result in coatings with significant physical thickness. Generally speaking, as the coatings become thicker they are more challenging to pattern.
