IMA

The IMA™ hyperspectral microscopy platform delivers equally high spectral and spatial resolution. Have this modular system configured to rapidly scan the VIS, NIR and/or SWIR spectrums while mapping a combination of photoluminescence, electroluminescence, fluorescence, reflectance, and/or transmittance. Each IMA™ comes equipped with high throughput global imaging filters; this allows it to measure a megapixel hypercube faster than hyperspectral systems reliant on scanning spectrography.

IMA™ OPENS THE DOOR TO

  • Perform complex material analyses like solar cell characterization and semiconductor quality control (e.g.: perovskite, GaAs, SiC, CIS, CIGS, etc.).
  • Study IR markers in complex environments including live cells and tissue. Take for instance the spectral heterogeneity of IR fluorophores emitting in the second biological window.
  • Retrieve dark-field images and obtain a contrast of transparent and unstained samples such as polymers, crystals or live cells.

Applications

PHOTOVOLTAIC

IMA PL provides spectrally and spatially resolved luminescence images. It was successfully used to investigate spatial distribution of optoelectronic properties of CIS, CIGS, GaAs and perovskite solar cells.

MULTIPLEXING OF 17 SWCNTs

IMA-IR™ is used to identify and map the distribution of 17 different species (chiralities) of carbon nanotubes. 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.

.

NANOPARTICLES IN CANCER CELLS

When Photon etc’s hyperspectral imager is combined with a highly effective dark field condenser, it is possible to generate high-contrast images of biological samples such as cancer cells.

THIN FILMS OF GaP

Spectral dependence of the Faraday magneto-optical effect with temperature dependence measurements were performed on a semiconductor 2 µm epilayer (GaP) grown with embedded metallic ferromagnetic nanoclusters (MnP).
