Meadowlark Optics has successfully built and demonstrated a liquid crystal based tunable filter with novel FWHM
tunability. This allows separate control over both the location of a narrow spectral bandpass and the width of the
bandpass function. This non-mechanical, imaging filter thus enables random access of the visible to near IR spectrum
and also controlling the specificity of the transmitted light. We will discuss both the relative trade-offs in this filter
design space and present data from functional units.
