Application Note

Specifying Optical Filters for Sensor Applications

Source: Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI)

Each sensor application has its own subtleties that need to be addressed in order to design the appropriate optical filter for each sensing task. This application note discusses the critical parameters for bandpass filters that are to be used for sensor applications.
