17 June 1996 Electronically tunable narrow-band-pass optical filter for spectral imaging

We present details of an electronically tunable, narrow bandpass optical filter for applications in optical spectroscopy and spectral imaging. It is based on the combination of an acousto-optic tunable filter and a Fabry- Perot, which we call an acousto-optic Fabry-Perot filter (AOFPF). It offers advantages of a broadband tuning range (several hundred nanometers) and a narrow optical bandpass (subangstrom resolution in visible/NIR). A prototype AOFPF which operates in the visible/NIR wavelength region has been designed, fabricated and tested. Detailed experimental results are presented.
