Color Matching through Optical Coating: Visualizing an Example Cut-on Filter

Posted by The VisiMax Team on Aug 10, 2017 9:14:00 AM

The performance of a cut-on optical filter is typically presented using the plot of the percentage transmission at each specified wavelength. The figure below demonstrates the combination of light that would be transmitted through a cut-on filter with the stopband and pass­band in the visible range. The red, green and blue curves are color matching functions designed to quantify the way the human eye perceives color. When the transmitted spectrum is combined with color matching functions, we can see that the light transmitted through the filter will appear to be orange colored.

Common Uses of Optical Filters: An Example of LED Emission and Color Perception

Posted by The VisiMax Team on Jul 13, 2017 8:50:00 AM

A light source, whether natural or man-made, typically emits a broad spectrum of wavelengths, including ultraviolet and infrared. In some applications, this full spectrum is acceptable or even desired. In others, however, it may be necessary to limit the wavelengths passing from the light source. This is where optical filters come in.
