Optical filters for the use in space instruments must not only satisfy the optical requirements but also contribute to the reduction of mass and size of the instrument itself. Moreover, they must survive in space conditions, specifically at low temperatures and with exposure to irradiation by various particles. Two examples of narrowband transmission filters dedicated to Earth observation are described. © 2010 Chinese Optics Letters.
