Alluxa is a world leader in high-performance optical filters and thin-film coatings. In this highly informative white paper Alluxa explains how their high-performance, ultra-narrowband interference filters improve LIDAR signal-to-noise ratios.
Arguably the most versatile active remote sensing technique, LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is used across platforms and across disciplines. Long known to be one of the most important technologies in Earth and atmospheric sciences, LIDAR is now being utilized for obstacle avoidance in autonomous vehicles, urban planning, security, infrastructure development, and many other applications. This surge of novel uses recently forced an influx of technological advancements and a renewed interest in LIDAR sensors that is driving down the cost and making the technology more accessible.
