comb filter


Posted on Feb 5, 2014

The use of optical filters to reduce/remove light from other sources. If a fairly narrowband optical filter were used on the receiver, `off-wavelength` light could be rejected - but such filters are quite expensive, they can be difficult to implement on a very simple optical system 1, and some may not even be usable with the relatively wide spectral width of LED-based emitters. An alternative would be to

use theatrical "gels" chosen to pass the desired wavelength with minimal attenuation while rejecting some of the dominant wavelengths of the light pollution. For red LEDs (615-650 nanometers) the Roscolux "Fire" (#19) theatrical "gel" filter (or its equivalent) has been found reduce the effects of both high-pressure sodium and mercury vapor light pollution by about 6dB while minimally impacting the desired signals. Narrower beamwidth. The use of a large-aperture lens coupled with the smallest-area photodetector practical can narrow the field-of-view of the detector allowing greater discrimination of off-axis, interfering sources. This can be accomplished with a photodetector that has an active area about the same size as the "blur circle" 2 of the lens system or by masking off a larger detector to a size that is slightly larger than that of the lens system`s blur circle. Slightly off-point the receiver to better-reject the noise source. Even if the desired signal is reduced, the net effect may be an overall improvement of the signal-noise ratio is the interfering light source is farther off-point than the desired signal. The use of a subcarrier on the link instead of baseband. This method simply shifts the audio so that it is conveyed at a frequency above where the majority of mains-induced interference dominates and this works as long as the receiver itself isn`t being overloaded by the light! Unfortunately, use of higher...
