IMA™
IMA

The IMA™ hyperspectral microscopy platform delivers equally high spectral and spatial resolution. Have this modular system configured to rapidly scan the VIS, NIR and/or SWIR spectrums while mapping a combination of photoluminescence, electroluminescence, fluorescence, reflectance, and/or transmittance. Each IMA™ comes equipped with high throughput global imaging filters; this allows it to measure a megapixel hypercube faster than hyperspectral systems reliant on scanning spectrography.

IMA™ OPENS THE DOOR TO
  • Perform complex material analyses like solar cell characterization and semiconductor quality control (e.g.: perovskite, GaAs, SiC, CIS, CIGS, etc.).
  • Study IR markers in complex environments including live cells and tissue. Take for instance the spectral heterogeneity of IR fluorophores emitting in the second biological window.
  • Retrieve dark-field images and obtain a contrast of transparent and unstained samples such as polymers, crystals or live cells.

HYPERSPECTRAL WIDEFIELD IMAGERS

Allowing you to completely characterize your target with full-resolution images at any wavelength within 400-1000 nm (V-EOS™) or 1000-2300 nm (S-EOS™), Photon etc.’s widefield hyperspectral imagers will change your view of spectral analysis. Acquisition of an optimized hyperspectral cube permits spectral analysis of each and every pixel of a full-resolution image, meaning no more fastidious XY scanning of samples or limiting exposure time of remote sensing acquisitions. Resulting in more than just an increase in efficiency, V-EOS™ and S-EOS™ provide data on both spectral and spatial content, allowing you to perform novel analysis by extending the frontiers of your most demanding applications.

TUNABLE SOURCES & FILTERS

The Laser Line Tunable Filter (LLTF) is a non-dispersive tunable bandpass filter based on volume holographic gratings. It delivers the highest signal throughput in the industry and is also unique in that it combines very high optical density (> OD6) and outstanding out-of-band rejection with wide tunability. A single filter can be tuned from 400 nm to 1000 nm (VIS) or 1000 nm to 2300 nm (SWIR), with bandwidths (FWHM) of <2.5 nm and <5 nm respectively. Custom and extended spectral ranges (up to 2500 nm) and bandwidths (sub-nm) are also available. Photon etc’s LLTF can be coupled with a supercontinuum laser to provide a Tunable Laser Source (TLS); the LLTF is compatible with any VIS-NIR broadband source

Accessories- HypIRia™ Objective lenses

The HypIRia™ are the only telecentric objective lenses optimized for 1 to 2.9 µm. Designed for machine vision and industrial applications, their heavy duty stainless steel and aluminum housing makes them quite resistant to harsh environment. They are well-suited for high-end scientific applications, mostly with spectroscopy or multiband due to their wide field and telecentrism. They succeed at providing a wide aperture over such a long spectral range while still limiting distortion and chromatism. This wide aperture allows an amazing throughput which offers high quality imaging even for low-light imaging. All surfaces have an anti-reflective broadband coating effective over the whole spectral range. The manual fine focus allows for a very precise adjustments of the image. They come in three different focal lengths (11 mm, 15 mm and 25 mm) and their input ports (SM1 and M45) can easily be coupled with standard filters and protective windows. The H11 has a particularily wide field of view, making it stand out even more.
