Photon etc’s technology and applications in action: global hyperspectral imaging, in vivo fluorescence imaging, Bragg tunable filters.

Hyperspectral Characterization of Next-Generation Solar Cells and LEDs

This video shows how spectrally and spatially resolved PL and EL maps can help identify defects, losses, and uniformity in advanced materials. A hyperspectral photoluminescence demonstration is performed on large grain perovskite crystals.

In Vivo NIR-II Imaging: Contact-Free Monitoring Heartbeat & Respiratory Rate

High-speed imaging made available by the fast frame rates of InGaAs cameras allows for contact-free cardiography and respiratory rate measurements in both anesthetized and awake animals. Such contact-free measurements of awake mice obtained without the use of any restraining device could drastically change studies procedures in labs.

Real-Time Biodistribution and Pharmacokinetics of ICG in a Mouse Using NIR-II Fluorescence

Video of IR VIVO imaging experiment showing the biodistribution and pharmacokinetics of ICG in real time. IR VIVO is able to visualize NIR probes at high resolutions. From one single injection, it was possible to obtain measurements of heartbeats, respiration and intestinal contraction rates.

In Vivo NIR-II Imaging of Liver Metabolism, Hepatobiliary Elimination & Gastro-Intestinal Motility

With a simple tail-vein injection of ICG, we can study liver metabolism, measure hepatobiliary elimination and monitor gastrointestinal motility simultaneously in vivo and contact-free. Such a straightforward method to image the intestine could help research on metabolic diseases.

Photon etc.’s Global Imaging Technology

This video shows the conceptual difference between hyperspectral global imaging and raster scan (line scan, pushbroom). With global imaging, only a few monochromatic images are required to obtain a hyperspectral cube of data (X-Y spatial, Z spectral). With raster scan technologies, a spectrum needs to be acquired on each point/line within the desired field of view.
