   As you can see in the chart to the right, Quantum Efficiency of the sensor in the Achromatic+ back is expanded beyond the visible spectrum to include ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths. This expanded sensitivity is the result of the lack of Bayer Pattern color filters and IR cut-off filters on the Achromatic+ digital back.

   This lack of filtration also contributes to the capture of the most accurate data, increased sharpness and foreign artifacts are virtually nonexistent.
