Thin-Film Interference Filters for LIDAR by Alluxa 26 Jul 2018

LIDAR is becoming more efficient, affordable, and accessible than ever. Recent technological advancements have seen dramatically increased accuracy and resolution, even in systems that are small enough to be discretely hidden within the side mirrors of self-driving cars. Thin-film interference filters have kept up with the technology through state-of-the-art design and coating techniques, advanced measurement systems, tight uniformity control, and minimal thermal dependence. For any LIDAR instrument, Alluxa’s high performance interference filters will maximize signal-to-noise ratio and system performance.

Avantes Application Note: Environmental Sciences 31 May 2018

Ecosystems around the world face growing threats from industrialization,growing populations, and increasing urbanization.
