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. IS NOW PART OF SIMON THIBAULT’S RESEARCH CHAIR

Photon etc. is proud to announce that it is now part of Simon Thibault's research chair in Optical Design. Professor Thibault and his team from the Department of Physics, Engineering Physics and Optics at Université Laval will help Photon etc. develop new optical systems in the near infrared range for which there is a growing demand in industrial vision system and biomedical research.

More details on the research chair are available on the NSERC website.


 

 

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 reporter 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.

WHITE PAPER - COOLING SWIR SENSORS

AN OVERVIEW

Dark current is a critical parameter when one is looking to acquire a scientific imaging camera, especially in the short-wave infrared (SWIR) region. Very careful attention must be paid to the cooling method used to optimize this parameter. In this white paper, a short introduction to thermoelectric (TE) cooling is presented, as well as a comparison with other available cooling methods.
