WESTFORD, Mass., April 18 -- Barr Associates Inc. has introduced an 18-element multipectral filter microarray in which each element is a high-precision thin film filter just 0.032 millimeters wide.

It said the new technology has more spectral bands, which can be accommodated in a smaller volume and are compatible with higher-resolution detector arrays. The new microarrays can be used with any focal plane array detector, from ultraviolet to long-wave infrared wavelength ranges. Potential applications include commercial colorimetry and space-based multispectral imaging.

"The newly developed microarrays will provide a very rugged, high-performance alternative to linear variable filters or diffraction gratings," said Kevin Downing, manager of the arrays product line at Barr Associates.
