Innovative on-chip filter technology is reshaping the landscape of spectral imaging, making the cameras more compact, real-time, power-efficient, and customizable. The technology makes them accessible even to those without specialized expertise in spectral imaging and data interpretation. We'll demonstrate a snapscan spectral camera using this on-chip filter technology. It is sensitive to short-wave infrared (SWIR) and can generate a high-quality hypercube with an unmatched spatial and spectral resolution. Applications include detailed study of material or object composition. Examples are sorting, food inspection and digital microscopy for pathology. Of particular note is the integrated scanning system within the camera, eliminating the need for cumbersome translating stages or belts. This presentation unveils a second camera type ideal for in-field applications: the snapshot SWIR spectral camera. It has a video-rate acquisition with no motion artifacts, perfectly suited for studying moving objects or scenes. The camera concept allows it to be mounted on handheld devices, robots of unmanned vehicles, operating in the field. Applications include health, space exploration, and machine vision. Join Wouter Charle and Ash Prabala for this illuminating session to witness firsthand how on-chip SWIR spectral imaging is poised to redefine industry standards and open doors to uncharted possibilities.
