Presentation of Photon etc's Hyperspectral Microscope

From solar cells to live cell imaging, our fast and all-in-one hyperspectral microscope IMA offers unmatched image and data quality.


 

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 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.
