Photon etc. has developed a new affordable deep-cooled SWIR camera sensitive from 0.85μm to 2.5μm. Using a rotary Stirling micro cooler, BOREA™ reaches lower noise level then all of its TE cooled competitors.
Based on Photon etc's hyperspectral technology, the Photonic Knowledge's Core Mapper™ delivers a series of monochromatic images at user-specified wavelengths, offering instant in situ mineral identification.
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 the 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.
