A new optical computation method for the monitoring of chemical reactions requires filters with spectral transmittance curves that vary in a complicated way with wavelength. In this paper we consider the design of two different sets of filters, one of which could be used to predict the degree of curing of a polymer from an analysis of its Raman spectra. The problem is not easy because the required filters have sharp spectral features in a narrow spectral region. Two different design methods are… Expand
