Very Narrow Band Interference Filters

  • J. V. Ramsay (a1)


In solar physics a need exists for filters which have very narrow passbands, ~0.01 nm or less. While Lyot-Öhman birefringent filters have been used particularly for investigations at the Hα line, the limited availability of the raw materials, especially calcite, have usually restricted these filters to passbands of ~ 0.025 nm or more. A possible alternative type of filter consists of a number of Fabry-Perot interferometers mounted one behind the other.
