Hyperspectral Imaging - a Technology Update

This article is brought to you by: 

Hyperspectral sensors offer a number of advantages thanks to their ability to identify and quantify molecular absorption. Hyperspectral imaging is widely used in applications including food and agriculture, mineralogy, surveillance, astronomy, chemical imaging and many more. This white paper provides a glimpse of some new developments within hyperspectral imaging technology, highlighting what is a rapidly changing imaging landscape.

Long wave infrared (LWIR) spectroscopy is of great interest to spectral geologists. This is because minerals such as quartz, k-feldspar, pyroxene, hornblende, anorthite, calcite, and dolomite are only identifiable in the LWIR range, not in the short-wave infrared (SWIR) range. However, Raman spectroscopy is complementary to LWIR spectroscopy, providing fingerprint spectra of these minerals and an alternative identification method. But Raman spectroscopy also provides several additional benefits on the instrument side.

Ultraviolet Hyperspectral Imaging Opens New Research Opportunities

An ultraviolet (UV) hyperspectral camera was used to capture spectroscopic images, showing UV reflectance signatures that are not detectible with human vision. Many animals and insects have visual receptors sensitive to UV light, and flowers’ reflectance signatures help them attract pollinators, as well as helping birds and insects find food. This points to the usefulness of UV imaging spectroscopy as a potential research tool in such fields as botanical science, entomology, and ornithology. 

Hyperspectral Imaging - Technology Update
