The purpose of this review was to investigate the literature for near infrared absorbing or attenuating systems with an emphasis on those that allow transmission of visible wavelengths. The spectral range of interest, therefore, lies between 0.4 to 5.0 microns. The types of infrared attenuating systems investigated include inorganic and organic compunds and other optical methods; such as, the interference filters and Christiansen filters.
