Embodiments herein are directed to a metamaterial transmission filters including a metamaterial component and a upper medium positioned within proximity of the metamaterial component such that movement of the upper medium changes the resonances and optical transmission, reflection or absorption spectra of the filter. The upper material may be a natural material or a second metamaterial identical or non-identical to the metamaterial component. Embodiments herein are designed to allow both continuous tuning of the optical spectra of the assembly and/or discrete spectral switching.

A chemical sensing system includes a substrate material, a detector capable of indicating a presence of a target compound, gas, or vapor, and a heater for rapidly releasing compounds, gases and vapors from the substrate material. The substrate material acts to concentrate the compounds, gases, and vapors from a sample area for improved detection by the detector.

Optical filters capable of operating in the infra-red spectrum are disclosed. In one embodiment, a filter may be dynamically switched to provide one of two optical responses. One optical response may include the filter reflecting infra-red radiation across a range of wavelengths except at one or more wavelengths at which the filter absorbs the radiation. A second optical response may include the filter reflecting infra-red radiation across the entire range of wavelengths. In one embodiment, the switching may be caused by the physical displacement of a first filter component with respect to a second filter component. A method of switching the response of such a filter is also disclosed. Another embodiment of the filter may include one in which the optical response of the filter is effectively independent of either the incidence angle of the radiation impinging on it, or the polarization of the incident radiation.
