Infrared filter

An infrared filter is a filter to remove visible light and only pass infrared light in different wavelengths. These are mainly used in infrared photography.

  • The Home Made Filter
    • Unexposed and developed slide film for cameras often works as a cheap infrared filter. The home-made filter typically begins transmission at around 710-730nm.[1]
    • "Congo Blue" theater gels are designed to pass IR light in order to avoid damage from heating. When combined with red filters which block their visible blue, the combination is reported to pass the shorter wavelengths of infrared up to around 720nm. [2]
    • A piece of double-side polished silicon works as an infrared filter with a relatively sharp cutoff of about 1050nm
