  5. Tunable Liquid Crystal Grating Filter

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    Multi and hyperspectral imaging techniques have been effectively commercialized in the visible waveband to give pointbypoint spectral information about a scene. The current goal is to adapt these technologies in order to extend the spectral range into the near ultraviolet. Specifically this proposal addresses the development of a tunable filter to be used in these hyperspectral imaging systems. Th ...
