Swir Laser Application

Short-wave infrared imaging (SWIR) is an advanced technique that generates images from the electromagnetic spectrum invisible to the human eye, generally defined as light in a wavelength range of 0.9 – 1.7μm but can also range from 0.7 – 2.5μm. SWIR cameras are imaging systems that are compact, portable, and offer precise detail from color measurements to advanced chemical imaging.

SWIR light behaves like visible light by reflecting off objects, which causes shadows and contrasts in images. The resolution and detail of SWIR camera images are comparable to those of visible images, making it easier to differentiate objects in a region even if they are similar in color.

SWIR cameras are popular in various industries because of their capabilities, which make them valuable. They are commonly used for night vision, inspecting internal structures, and seeing through smoke, low light conditions, and other materials.

SWIR Camera Recommendations and Applications

SWIR cameras have diverse purposes due to their technology and have an abundance of advantages when used in industrial environments. These high-speed cameras are used in a range of applications, including semiconductor inspection, beam profiling, moisture detection, hot glass inspection, machine vision imaging, chemical sensing, and more.

The NIT inGaAs SWIR camera line offers a unique product range from low-cost SWIR sensors to high-speed line arrays and large format focal plane arrays VGA and SXGA for the spectral range between 900 nm - 1700 nm.

NIT SWIR cameras and sensors are designed and manufactured in France using state-of-the-art InGaAs materials to create sensors with an ultra-high dynamic range of 120 dB.

NiT | SenS 1280 SMART SWIR Camera

For high-definition imaging applications where resolution is crucial, the NiT | SenS 1280 SMART SWIR Camera is a great choice. The SXVGA (1280 X 1024) format with 10μm pixel size and a substantially low noise floor (< 30e-) make it a dynamic high-speed SWIR camera.

The SenS 1280 SMART SWIR Camera is equipped with advanced onboard image processing, guaranteeing unparalleled performance. It also features Automatic Gain Control (AGC) to optimize brightness and contrast, ensuring precise detail capture as well as Automatic Integration Time (AIT) for automatic exposure adjustment to match target brightness. On-Board Non-Uniformity Correction (NUC) and Bad Pixel Replacement (BPR) enhance image quality by correcting irregularities and replacing defective pixels.
