Collection: 1000nm Bandpass Filter

Light at 1000nm falls within the near-infrared (NIR) spectrum, near the border with the short-wave infrared (SWIR) region. Applications here tend to focus on the wavelength's ability to penetrate even deeper into tissues and materials compared to shorter NIR wavelengths. Here's a breakdown of some key uses:

  • Biomedical Imaging (Emerging):

    • Deep Tissue Imaging: 1000nm light can potentially be used for imaging techniques that require deeper tissue penetration than what's achievable with shorter NIR wavelengths. This could be useful for visualizing structures or blood flow in deeper organs or bones. However, research in this area is still ongoing.
  • Thermal Therapy (Emerging): Similar to other NIR wavelengths, 1000nm light has the potential for use in photothermal therapy (PTT). By heating targeted tissues, PTT can damage unwanted cells. However, deeper penetration can also lead to increased risk of unintended heating in surrounding tissues. This is an area of active research to optimize the safety and effectiveness of 1000nm PTT.

  • Material Processing: 1000nm light can be used for certain material processing applications that benefit from deeper penetration. For example, it might be used in laser welding of thicker materials or for non-destructive testing where deeper inspection is required.

  • Environmental Monitoring (Emerging): Some research explores the use of 1000nm light in remote sensing for environmental monitoring purposes. It might be helpful for studying specific properties of vegetation or analyzing atmospheric conditions, but this is a developing field.

  • Fiber Optic Communication (Long-Distance): While not the most common due to higher signal attenuation,1000nm is one of the wavelengths used for data transmission in single-mode fiber optic cables. These cables are ideal for long-distance communication as they offer lower signal loss compared to multimode cables at this wavelength.
