Midwest Optical Systems Offers New Dual Bandpass Filters for NDVI Imaging

A Dual Bandpass Filter transmits two specific wavelength ranges while blocking shorter and longer wavelengths as well as some middle portion of the spectrum. These filters in particular pass visible light and some smaller portion of the near-infrared spectrum.  Blocking most of the near infrared allows for excellent color rendition while retaining the ability to pass a specific LED or laser diode wavelength used for nighttime illumination.

Midwest Optical Systems has introduced DB475/850 Dual Bandpass Filter Visible Blue plus NIR and DB660/850 Dual Bandpass Filter Visible Red plus NIR  – both ideal for normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) imaging applications.  DB475/850 has a useful range of 460-490nm and 830-870nm, while DB660/850 has a useful range of 645-675nm and 830-870nm.
