Xenics, Europe's leading developer and manufacturer of advanced infrared detectors, cameras and customized imaging solutions from the SWIR to the LWIR realm, is pleased to announce a significant improvement in the quality of its detectors and resulting cameras.
A team of researchers at Purdue University’s Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences Department recently tested the practicality of using shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging for improving the detection of poorly-visible tornadoes in supercell thunderstorms.
Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc. (PIRT) recently introduced the OEM version of its LineCam12, an affordable, indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) linescan camera that operates from 0.4 to 1.7 µm in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) and visible spectrum. Compact, with USB3 Vision™ and Camera Link digital outputs, the camera features a 1024 x 1 pixel format with a 12.5 µm pitch; it can be powered by USB3.0 in most applications
Raptor Photonics recently launched an additional member to its family of Visible SWIR cameras with the OWL 1280, offering HD resolution for high end long range surveillance, scientific and astronomy applications.
Xenics has recently been granted Commodity Jurisdiction (CJ) approval for many of their ITAR restricted infrared cameras. This new CJ means that all SWIR cameras supplied by Xenics are now ITAR-free in the United States.
Sierra-Olympic Technologies offers New Imaging Technologies’ (NIT) wide-dynamic-range (WDR), indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) shortwave infrared (SWIR) sensors and camera systems. This new SWIR imaging product family delivers a dynamic range greater than 140dB in a single snapshot, without any processing or tone mapping. Ideal for biomedical, laser measurements, welding, semiconductor, art inspection, and process control, the NIT WDR sensors’ internal Fixed Pattern Noise correction offers high uniformity images under all lighting conditions.
Xenics demonstrated its technology innovations for perimeter protection of sensitive public and industrial areas, focusing on its comprehensive portfolio of SWIR products at the SPIE DCS 2016. The focus is on SWIR technology innovation for the protection of sensitive public and industrial areas. New product introductions are the compact/low-cost SWIR camera module XSW-320 and the unique Bobcat-320-Gated for SWIR gated imaging applications.
On day two of SPIE’s 2016 DCS exhibition, Martin Ettenberg, CEO of Princeton Infrared Technologies, took some time out of the day to explain how SWIR technology is uniquely poised for use in moisture and chemical detection.
At SPIE’s DCS 2016 exhibition, Sensors Unlimited – A part of Collins Aerospace, Brendan Murphy, spent some time with Photonics Online to school us up on the three primary things one should consider before purchasing a SWIR imager — resolution, global availability, and cost.
At Photonics West 2014, Raptor Photonics had a variety of EMCCD, sCMOS, and CCD cameras on display. Their VP of sales and marketing Mark Donaghy gives us a closer look at the Kingfisher V 1940 x 1460 CCD camera.
