In this 45-minute webinar, Wouter Charle and Paul Danini will give insights into imec’s patented on-chip technology and evaluation cameras for hyperspectral imaging.
Are you designing systems for surveillance, robotics, precision agriculture, remote sensing, quality control, medicine & health, forensics, art & heritage, ...? Does your application require more detailed information on material composition or color to make better decisions? For instance: to know when a plant is stressed; to distinguish between different types of plastics or fabrics; to measure blood perfusion and oxygenation; to assess fruit ripeness or the amount of fat content; or any other useful insights that spectral imaging can provide.
In this webinar you will learn how the unique capabilities of hyperspectral imaging are applied to innovate businesses, applications, and research in these domains.
Also, in this webinar we will elaborate on imec’s unique on-chip technology and the off-the-shelf camera systems, the advanced imaging software, and the comprehensive support tools that imec can provide. It’s the perfect way to start your hyperspectral journey and to find out what hyperspectral imaging exactly can mean to you.
A hyperspectral camera captures the light that is reflected by an object or transmitted through a material. And, since every material has its own specific spectral fingerprint, it can be identified in this object. Thanks to machine learning and other novel algorithms, this can be translated into interesting details like water content, age, authenticity etc.
In the past, hyperspectral cameras were complex and expensive pieces of equipment, mainly for use in the lab, requiring large computers to process the data. Today, there are solutions that transform these complex giants into user-friendly and compact devices. The most integrated and miniaturized solution today is provided by imec’s on-chip spectral-filter technology.
In this webinar, details will be given on imec’s hyperspectral imaging technology and the novel applications it enables. The evolution of the cameras incorporating imec’s compact hyperspectral sensors, will be presented. Imec has developed both high-resolution hyperspectral scanning cameras and multi-spectral video-rate cameras, cameras for labs and microscopy as well as cameras for remote sensing and applications outside of the lab.
The requirements of every customer and his application are different. For this reason, we tailor our collaboration model, ranging from an off-the-shelf cameras/software to sensor customization and manufacturing projects tuned to your specific needs.
Paul Danini is in charge of business development of the imaging activity at imec. After a short experience in IP strategy and management at Avenium Consulting, he carried out market reports and marketing studies on the imaging industry at Yole Development. He joined imec in 2019 after 5 years as product manager for linescan cameras and CMOS image sensors at Teledyne e2v.
Wouter Charle is manager for hyperspectral imaging technology at imec, leading the off-the-shelf and evaluation system activities. He has a background in physics and software engineering. After starting his career in 3D machine vision, he joined imec in 2014 to help grow the hyperspectral imaging business.
