Infrared Spectral Selection
It Begins with the Detector
An IR imaging system employing a narrow spectral band brings hidden images to light, broadening IR imaging’s applications. Spectral selection is a powerful tool that enhances conventional imaging tremendously. Most imaging systems, including the human eye, are designed to image light over a broad range of the spectrum. This makes the system more sensitive to the available light, but can often wash out details or information of interest. By narrowing the color or spectral range,...
