Hyperspectral imaging combines high-resolution spectroscopy with digital imaging. A spectral camera images a line of an object and provides the spectral information of each pixel of that line in the second dimension of the detector. A movement of the object or of the spectral camera allows the acquisition of very sensitive and spectrally resolved images. Corresponding software displays a 3D spectral cube of an object or displays spectral information of moving objects.
A hyperspectral camera set-up includes optics, an imaging spectrograph, a camera displaying the spectral information and a software package to display and calculate the results.
Our spectral cameras cover the full spectral range using CCD and CMOS detectors in the VIS and VIS/NIR range, InGaAs cameras in the near IR, MCT detectors in the shortwave IR and InSb and microbolometers for hyperspectral imaging in the thermal IR.
Hyperspectral cameras can be used directly in laboratory or process control applications or they can be integrated in complete imaging systems for pharmacy, food production or geology. Some are also built in airborne systems and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
The all-in-one hyperspectral imaging system SpecimIQ is a highlight of current developments.
