  Filter (optics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Coating-based filters are often referred to as dichroic, and can be used in devices such as a dichroic prism to separate a beam of light into different coloured components.
Neutral density (ND) filters have a constant attenuation across the range of visible wavelengths, and are used to reduce the intensity of light by reflecting or absorbing a portion of it.
Polarized filters are also used to view certain types of stereograms, so that each eye will see a distinct image from a single source.

 filter (optics) - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about filter (optics)
In optics, a device that absorbs some parts of the visible spectrum and transmits others.
For example, a green filter will absorb or block all colours of the spectrum except green, which it allows to pass through.
A yellow filter absorbs only light at the blue and violet end of the spectrum, transmitting red, orange, green, and yellow light.

 Dichroic filter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A dichroic filter or thin-film filter is a very-accurate color filter used to selectively pass light of a small range of colors while reflecting other colors.
Used in front of a light source, a dichroic filter produces light that is perceived by humans to be highly saturated (intense) in color.
Because unwanted wavelengths are reflected rather than absorbed, dichroic filters don't absorb much energy during operation and so don't become nearly as hot as the equivalent conventional filter (which attempts to absorb all energy except for that in the passband).

 Application of adaptive filters to visual testing and treatment in acquired pendular nystagmus   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
We used the sinusoidal filter output to control either an image-gating device or an image-shifting device, and assessed the efficacy of the system by determining its ability to restore acuity in normal subjects in whom the visual effects of APN were simulated by oscillating the acuity testing optotypes.
Filter output matches the nystagmus perfectly over most of the record; track is reacquired following the interruptions within less than one-half cycle of the nystagmus waveform.
Thus the filter is expected to interact with normal eye movements to the extent that their power spectra coincide with this range.

Fabry-Perot filters and interferometers have provided the highest known optical wavelength resolution for 100 years, and are still considered seminal instruments in many branches of science including astronomy, atomic physics, chemistry, lasers, metrology, optics, plasma physics and spectroscopy.
The high degree to which the Micron Optics FFP Technology follows the Airy Function theory means optical systems can be designed to exhibit extremely low loss, predictable cross-talk, highly accurate power measurements, high Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR), and excellent wavelength resolution.
The high degree to which the filters follow the Airy Function theory allows optical engineers to accurately design single and cascaded filters for the densest DWDM systems (down to 6 GHz channel spacing).

 Metallized Capillaries as Probes for Raman Spectroscopy
To prevent the spurious emissions from overwhelming the desired Raman and/or fluorescence signals, it is necessary to incorporate spectral filters.
Alternatively, thin-film filters can be deposited directly on optical fibers or in proximity to the fibers, but the performances of such filters are inferior to those of free-space optical filters.
Hence, there would be no need for filters, ancillary filter optics, and associated mounting hardware vulnerable to misalignment, and so the probe would be better able to withstand such adverse environmental conditions as higher pressures, temperatures, and mechanical shocks.
