Linear Variable VIS NIR Bandpass Filters For Hyperspectral Imaging
Linear Variable VIS NIR Bandpass Filters For Hyperspectral Imaging

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is used for many applications including satellite imaging and air reconnaissance. HSI is usually executed with bulky hyperspectral-imaging cameras that are sensitive to misalignment, very expensive, and use prisms or gratings as dispersive elements. An alternative method of HSI is the combination of linear variable bandpass filters (LVBPFs) with silicon detectors. This allows for very compact, robust, and affordable HSI detectors that offer several advantages over conventional approaches.

  • Solid-State Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) For Near-Ultraviolet or Red, Green & Blue Light Detection
    Solid-State Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) For Near-Ultraviolet or Red, Green & Blue Light Detection

    First Sensor offers a new series of innovative solid-state silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) that are designed to detect ultra-low light levels down to single photons. These detectors are optimized for near-ultraviolet (Series SiPM-NUV) or red, green, and blue (Series SiPM-RGB) light detection with peak sensitivities at 420 nm or 550 nm. Key features include a low operating voltage, high gain and low noise, and immunity to magnet fields.

  • High-Accuracy Laser Wavelength Meter
    High-Accuracy Laser Wavelength Meter

    The 671 Series Laser Wavelength Meter is the best way to measure the absolute wavelength of CW lasers that operate from the visible to the mid-IR. This system provides real-time laser wavelength information with an accuracy as high as ± 0.0001 nm. Continuous calibration with a built-in wavelength standard ensures the reliable accuracy that is needed to generate the most meaningful experimental results.
