Customizable Spectral Profiles for Filtering

Customizable Spectral Profiles for Filtering
Inventors: Carl Dirk
Patent No. 7,663,739

This patent relates generally to optics and spectroscopy. More particularly, This patent relates to techniques for generating customized spectral profiles, which can be used to generate corresponding optical filters. Representative embodiments relate to spectral profiles that may be used to generate optical filters that (a) protect works of art, (b) aesthetically render objects, and/or (c) correct the rendering of an object.

Methods for generating a customized spectral profile, which can be used to generate a corresponding filter. A trial source spectrum is generated. An uncorrected lamp source spectrum is determined. One or more optical indices are calculated using the trial source spectrum or the uncorrected lamp source spectrum, and one or more of the optical indices are optimized by varying the trial source spectrum to generate the customized spectral profile.
