Hyperspectral Microscope IMA (VIS-SWIR)


Photon etc: Hyperspectral Microscope IMA

IMA is a hyperspectral microscope delivering spectral and spatial information in the VIS, NIR, and SWIR range (400 nm – 1620 nm). This system rapidly maps photoluminescence, electroluminescence, fluorescence, reflectance, and transmittance. Based on high throughput global-imaging filters, IMA is faster and more efficient than standard point-by-point or line-scan based systems.
