UV and IR coatings
Coatings against UV and IR rays
UV coating: (UV)
Glass and plastic can be coated to decrease the amount of ultraviolet radiation that passes through. It is a transparent filter covered with a special coating which absorbes UV rays.
IR protective filters:
IR-Cut filters are frequently used as heat-absorbing filters since they let the visible spectral range pass while the infrared rays from 780nm on are strongly blocked.
These infrared filters are often used to protect IR-sensitive sensors or used in illumination systems.
