Does sunlight contain 940nm wavelength light?

Apologies if this has an obvious answer, my knowledge of this area is very limited.

I am attempting to produce a setup that will allow me to illuminate objects in 940nm wavelength infrared light, and see it via a bandpass filter tuned for that frequency.

My question is whether sunlight will effect the image, I know it produces a lot of IR light, but does it contain all different types of frequency?

Edit:

The setup will be indoors, however there will be windows around letting sunlight in, so this is not for direct sunlight but ambient.

Any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

• Have you done a search of "solar spectrum" or something similar to that? – Kyle Kanos Mar 17 '15 at 12:50
• I have, but it spreads across atmospheric conditions as well (i.e, outside of the atmosphere, to sea level) and I do not know where on the graph "normal" ambient sunlight would fall. if it helps this will be indoors, however there will be windows allowing sunlight in. – Aphire Mar 17 '15 at 12:58
• @KyleKanos just out of interest, anything wrong with my answer? just learned that comments are optimum strategy for some questions – user74893 Mar 17 '15 at 13:06
• @irish: if you're referring to your meta post about it, I don't believe that is at all what John Rennie said. Your answer is, at best, half an answer: it does not convey anything OP doesn't seem to already know and starts off addressing something irrelevant. – Kyle Kanos Mar 17 '15 at 13:12
• @KyleKanos no just dealing with this particular question 2 d/v immediately after I published it ... just learning the ropes no big deal thanks – user74893 Mar 17 '15 at 13:24

940 nm occurs right around the first H$_2$O valley (where some of the sunlight is absorbed by water in the atmosphere). So while this wavelength will be reduced in intensity (as compared to 1000 nm), your device will likely still observe some background IR.
