HYPERSPECTRAL IMAGERS

 

TUNABLE SOURCES AND FILTERS

OUR LATEST INNOVATIONS

 

IR VIVO

Using the second biological window (NIR-II) from 900-1620 nm, Photon etc.’s preclinical imager provides outstanding hyperspectral infrared imaging capabilities. It combines micron-scale spatial resolution, real-time imaging and full spectral coverage throughout small animals. Emission of several fluorophores can be isolated with a high-efficiency tunable filter and the ZephIR™ 1.7.

GRAND-EOS

GRAND-EOS combines a hyperspectral microscopy system with a hyperspectral wide-field imaging platform, giving access to micro and macro modalities with both VNIR (400-1000 nm) and SWIR (900-1620 nm) spectral ranges. The versatility of GRAND-EOS, as well as its high spatial and spectral resolution, makes it an ideal tool for both fundamental research or industrial applications.

IMA™ in IR

IMA™ is the only hyperspectral imager optimized from 900 nm to 1620 nm. It offers a unique, non-invasive approach to spectral imaging in the second biological window. Distribution maps of IR probes can be obtained at remarkably high speeds, as IMA™ enables simultaneous acquisition of data from millions of points.

PHOTON ETC. RENEWS ITS SUPPORT TO PROF. SIMON THIBAULT'S RESEARCH CHAIR

With the 2019 Partnership Award from ADRIQ, Photon etc. and Professor Simon Thibault's research group from Laval University officially renew their collaboration for the upcoming four years. Our company is indeed proud to announce that it is renewing its support for the research chair in optical design of Simon Thibault, professor in the Department of Physics, Engineering Physics and Optics at Université Laval. This partnership will allow Photon etc. to increase its leadership in infrared and hyperspectral technologies, to benefit from increased demand in industrial vision and biomedical research.


PHOTON ETC. WINS THE PARTNERSHIP PRIZE AT THE INNOVATION AWARD 2019

Photon etc.'s collaboration with Professor Simon Thibault from the COPL at Université Laval was awarded the Partnership prize during the ADRIQ-RCTI Innovation Awards. Together, we perfected the development of the ZephIR cameras and we also created a unique industrial telecentric objective lens, the HypIRias. By using exotic glasses, we obtain a high resolution while maximizing the throughput within the 1-2.9 µm spectral band.


WEBINAR

May 30th, 10:00 ET

On May 30th, was taking place Photon etc.'s webinar on the Hyperspectral Characterization of Next Generation Solar Cells and LEDs. Two of our top scientists gave a live demonstration of our IMA™ on a perovskite crystal. If you want more information about the webinar, email us at info@photonetc.com.


SÉBASTIEN BLAIS-OUELLETTE, PHOTON ETC’S PRESIDENT AND CEO IS NOW VICE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE ‘‘CENTRE D’ENTREPRENARIAT POLY-UDEM’’

A HOT-CARRIER ASSISTED InAs/AlGaAs QUANTUM-DOT INTERMEDIATE-BAND SOLAR CELL

Really interesting article from IPVF and Tokyo University where absolute intensity calibrated PL hyperspectral images acquired with IMA were used to "investigate the balance of photons in the QD-IBSC [intermediate-band assisted hot-carrier solar cell] system following the emission from different positions of the excited sample."

A HIGHLY EMISSIVE SURFACE LAYER IN MIXED-HALIDE MULTICATION PEROVSKITE

Really interesting work from Prof Stranks' research group from Cambridge University. In this paper, the changes in photoluminescence and photoconductance of solution-processed triple-cation mixed-halide perovskite films are studied under solar-equivalent illumination. See how the PL emission maps obtained with Photon etc's hyperspectral microscope is used to provide insight on spatial heterogeneities.

AN OPTICAL NANOREPORTER OF ENDOLYSOSOMAL LIPID ACCUMULATION REVEALS ENDURING EFFECTS OF DIET ON HEPATIC MACROPHAGES IN VIVO

Dr. Dan Heller’s research led to a very interesting discovery. Using SWCNT-based optical reporters and our IR VIVO™ imager, his group found that elevated lipid quantities in hepatic macrophages - the liver - caused by a high-fat diet persist long after reverting to a normal diet. In other words, Morgan Spurlock (the Super Size Me guy) might have affected his health irreversibly for his movie.
