New technologies for infrared imaging

Wed, May 29, 2019 3:00 PM BST{LOCAL_TZ}


This webcast will explore the latest equipment for imaging in the shortwave infrared, including lighting techniques using narrowband SWIR LEDs, and a novel SWIR camera based on a colloidal quantum dot sensor. Practical examples of integrating near-infrared imaging in industrial applications will also be discussed.

An Introduction to Short-Wave Infrared Imaging (SWIR)
Shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging is finding increasing application in machine vision applications for the capabilities it offers beyond the visible spectrum. With the ability to detect wavelengths between 1,000 and 2,500 nm, SWIR imagers significantly extend the image capture and analysis possibilities enabled by visible sensors. Though there are several imaging technologies that operate within the SWIR, many early implementations have leveraged comparatively cost-effective indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) cameras. Since these cameras capture data in the 900-1700 nm SWIR spectrum, they enable unique differentiation of materials and processes otherwise impossible to capture in the visible range. Broadband light sources are adequate to illuminate some SWIR applications. However, narrowband SWIR LEDs have emerged as a more flexible alternative. Emitting at peak wavelengths of 1050, 1200, 1300, 1450, and 1550 nm, these LEDs now offer high enough powers to offer appealing new options for machine vision lighting. 

This webinar will briefly outline introduce some of the key enabling technologies underlying SWIR imaging, and survey SWIR’s unique application possibilities.

New CQD Quantum Dot SWIR Camera Technology and Imaging Applications using High Definition SWIR Cameras

SWIR Vision Systems will introduce Quantum Dot based image sensors, explaining how they work, and the resulting cost and technical performance attributes of this new class of devices. Additionally, the company will describe how the new high definition Acuros cameras compare to InGaAs based cameras, and how they can be put to use in short wavelength infrared applications.

Practical NIR imaging in industrial applications – some examples of uncomplicated ways to potentially improve your imaging and tips for integration.
One of the useful and easy-to-implement aspects of non-visible imaging is the use of near infra-red (NIR) illumination in machine vision applications for industrial automation.  This webcast segment will discuss the common uses and benefits of NIR illumination within this context and will include two case studies of successful application implementations.
