Photon etc fast and all-in-one hyperspectral microscope IMA IR offers unmatched image and data quality. This hyperspectral platform is optimized for infrared spectral range.
- Fast global mapping (non scanning)
- High spatial and spectral resolution
- Complete system (source, microscope, camera, filter, software)
- Non-destructive analysis
- Customization available
- Sensitive from 900 nm to 1700 nm
NIR hyperspectral microscopy covers the detection range of 900 nm -1700 nm and is ideal for the spatial and spectral identification and measurement of fluorophores that emit in the second biological window. For example, single wall nanotubes (SWNTs) emission bands are narrow (~ 20 nm) and each band corresponds to unique (n, m) species (chiralities). With IR hyperspectral microscopy, it is possible to separate these species, with single SWNT spatial resolution on surfaces, in live cells (in vivo), and in vitro.
Images obtained by IR hyperspectral microscopy can be used to study fluorescence and spectral heterogeneity from single SWNTs in complex environments, including live cells and tissues.
Based on a sensitive HgCdTe FPA, and integrating a four-stage TE cooler, ZEPHIR™ delivers an astounding 345 frame-per-second rate while reaching unrivalled low noise levels. Perfectly adapted to industrial applications in quality control and sorting.
Photon etc’s Global Imaging Technology
This video shows the conceptual difference between hyperspectral global imaging and raster scan (line-scan, push- broom). With global imaging, the gain in acquiring 3D data, 2D spatial and 1D spectral, is important since only a few monochromatic images are required to cover the complete spectral range where one needs to take the full spectrum for each point or line in the image with other technologies.
