Advanced Optically Black Baffles

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Baffles in optical systems are internal surfaces that control or suppress stray radiation, typically using geometrically designed vanes and surface morphology. Baffles perform a major role in determining the signal-to-noise level of many optical systems. While a few commercially available baffle materials meet optical requirments, current industrial baffle materials do not meet survivability and endurability needs; i.e, thermal, mechanical, and chemical stability requirements. The major problem is the generation of particles from the baffle surfaces during transport and operation which degrade the image quality.
