Near infrared and shortwave infrared cameras

Near infrared cameras

InGaAs cameras have the highest quantum efficiency in the NIR. NIR cameras cover the wavelength range of 900 – 1700 nm, a range that is best suited for absorption and radiation characteristics analyses. Typical NIR cameras feature either 320 x 256 or 640 x 512 pixels. You may choose between USB, analog, cameraLink, GigE or even GigE Vision interfaces.

Shortwave infrared cameras

Thermal imaging cameras in the shortwave infrared become more and more important. Typical applications can be found in photovoltaics, agricultural technology, laser beam profiling, the food industry, and the synthetics industry. Our shortwave infrared cameras cover the full range from 1000 – 2350 nm.

Near infrared cameras

Synthetics may be distinguished by varying absorption bands in the NIR, and the combination with a suitable filter or spectral camera allows different sorting applications. Another application area is agricultural technology. Different materials emit differently in the NIR so pesticides or plant damages can easily be spotted and combated. In pharmaceutical applications, InGaAs camera systems recognize fillers and active agents and in photovoltaics they help analyze the photoluminescence of solar cells and the spotting of impurities in silica blocks. Depending on the application, our InGaAs cameras are either used as NIR line scan cameras or NIR matrix cameras.

Our uncooled NIR cameras of the XS series are very popular because of their small size, robustness and good image quality. They are used in a great number of applications and in a variety of configurations. Our model Bobcat is highly estimated in the integration industry for its high resolution, small size, and the Ethernet or GigE vision standard. Our models Xeva and Xeva Large are cooled InGaAs cameras with a high sensitivity and frame rate for short and long exposure times in scientific applications. Our Cheetah camera with a high-resolution, large-format InGaAs detector has the highest frame rate. With up to 2048 pixels, our Lynx line scan cameras feature the largest amount of pixels and the highest resolution on the market.

Shortwave infrared cameras

The shortwave infrared camera’s detector material is T2SL which is cooled through a four-stage thermoelectric cooler. Glass may be used as material, so there are a great variety of different objectives available. At the same time an SWIR can take pictures of processes through glass windows. We offer different SWIR T2SL camera versions with frame rates 100 Hz full frame or 350 full frames per second.

Within the SWIR range, we also offer MID cameras with InSb detectors (model Onca). InSb usually covers the range 1 – 5 µm. To reduce atmospheric interferences, we can use cold filters in our camera systems to reduce this range to 3 – 5 µ.

Xeva 2.35 is a high-performance shortwave infrared camera for the wavelength range 900 nm to 2350 nm. The camera utilizes a new T2SL detector and is equipped with a 4-stage thermoelectric cooler for long term stable images. It features 320 x 256 pixels for excellent spatial resolution.

Cougar is the near infrared camera offering lowest noise and highest sensitivity for low-light-level measurements world wide. Cooled by LN2. It excels in performance for any R&D spectroscopy or semiconductor failure analysis task. These demanding applications, where very low light levels need to be measured, require cameras with low noise, low dark current and best response in the SWIR range. All of these features are now combined in one single camera.
