Thin Film Interference Filters for LIDAR

Driven by a multitude of new applications, LIDAR is becoming more efficient, affordable, and accessible than ever. Recent technological advancements have seen dramatically increased accuracy and resolution, even in systems that are small enough to be discretely hidden within the side mirrors of self-driving cars. Thin-film interference filters have kept up with the technology through state-of-the-art design and coating techniques, advanced measurement systems, tight uniformity control, and minimal thermal dependence.
