 Silicon Carbide Defect Characterization

This video shows various type of defects in SiC  that are easily detected using  Photon etc's luminescence imaging system. Offering spectrally resolved images, Photon etc's hyperspectral imaging technology improves material development capacities.


 

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.
