Hemispherical-field-of-view, nonimaging narrow-band spectral filter. Academic Article uri icon


  • Two compound parabolic concentrators are used to create a 180 degrees -field-of-view spectral filter. The collection optics are reflective and are designed to collimate the light through a multilayer interference filter and then to refocus it onto an optical detector. Assuming unit reflectance and no loss through the optical filter, this device operates at the thermodynamic collection limit.
