According to DSI’s Thin Film Design Engineer, Lucas Alves, “The detection of gas concentrations by spectroscopic techniques is the basis for a variety of applications.
The absorption of infrared radiation at wavelengths between 2.0 - 20.0 microns provides a definitive signature of the bending, stretching, and/or twisting of the atomic bonds in a particular gas molecule. DSI’s IR narrow bandpass filters allow discretization of the spectra through a gas sample at multiple detection wavelengths, inside and/or outside the absorption band of interest.”
Thin film optical coatings are widely used for non-diffractive infrared (NDIR) sensing systems and other measurement tasks. DSI’s NBP filters are calibrated for center wavelength (CWL) placement to offset temperature shifts that are native to this spectroscopic measurement technique. They also feature reliable and repeatable transmittance characteristics which are essential for high performance in any gas-sensing application in the infrared.
