How To Customize Glass For New Light-Based Technologies
 
By Justine Galbraith, Kopp Glass

The ability to control light is often the key to many new light-based technologies and products. Those seeking to push the limits of what light can achieve should consider how glass filters can be used to selectively filter light, as glass is a highly flexible material and can be engineered to either absorb or transmit specific wavelengths of light.
