Multispectral and hyperspectral imaging in the long wave infrared (LWIR) spectral region has numerous applications in agriculture, astronomy20-22, medicine, and the sensing of dangerous chemical/biological agents23-25. One of the challenges of developing a spectral imaging system in the LWIR is the availability of spectral filters. We will report on three different design methods for realizing spectral filters in the LWIR. The first is an all-dielectric reflection filter based on the guidedmode resonance response. The second is a spatially-varying plasmonic structure that can be used to synthesize complicated spectral reflectance. The third is a Fabry-Perot design for tunable transmission. Numerical and experimental results will be presented.
