Hyperspectral imaging technology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Hyperspectral imaging cameras can determine if objects being viewed are hot or cold, wet or dry, their fat and sugar content and the presence of certain chemical elements. Therefore, it has a diverse range of applications in areas such as pharmaceuticals, food technology and homeland security. Whereas conventional colour cameras capture light in just three spectral windows, hyperspectral cameras have the ability to capture an entire section of the electromagnetic spectrum at every pixel.
