Infrared Coating & Anti-Laser Coating
Advanced Spectrometer Optics and Design
Introduction When infrared radiation propagates through the Earth’s atmosphere, it is influenced by various substances within the atmosphere, resulting in a decrease in the ability of light to penetrate. This phenomenon is known as atmospheric attenuation or atmospheric extinction. The impact of atmospheric extinction on infrared radiation is wavelength-dependent, showing distinct selectivity across different wavelengths. […]
