Is anyone familiar with how to produce virtually transparent laticework of infrared conducting material on a 14" by 14" glass sheet for example? Are there clear infrared epoxies available?

RE: materials

Specify your frequency of interest. Near or far infrared?. most LED's are near infrared and are potted in clear epoxy. Far infrared is thermal.

RE: materials

My goal is to have a dual plane grid of IR conductors spaced 1mm apart, that you can essentially see through. I want to scan both glass edges (x glass and y glass) and calculate via signal processing the cartesian coordinates of an infrared beam striking the glass. I don't have aproblem with the processer part of it just how to make the glass material with latticework of IR conductors at 800-900nm and small spacing to render conduction when a laser IR hits it.  

RE: materials

Huh?  800-900 nm is barely outside of the visible range, therefore, jsut about ANYTHING transparent to visible will be transparent to your wavelength.  So get a sheet of plexiglass or Lexan and cut openings in it.

Is this for school?
