The IMA™ hyperspectral microscopy platform delivers equally high spectral and spatial resolution. Have this modular system configured to rapidly scan the VIS, NIR and/or SWIR spectrums while mapping a combination of photoluminescence, electroluminescence, fluorescence, reflectance, and/or transmittance. Each IMA™ comes equipped with high throughput global imaging filters; this allows it to measure a megapixel hypercube faster than hyperspectral systems reliant on scanning spectrography.

 

IMA™ OPENS THE DOOR TO

  • Perform complex material analyses like solar cell characterization and semiconductor quality control (e.g.: perovskite, GaAs, SiC, CIS, CIGS, etc.).

  • Study IR markers in complex environments including live cells and tissue. Take for instance the spectral heterogeneity of IR fluorophores emitting in the second biological window. ​

  • Retrieve dark-field images and obtain a contrast of transparent and unstained samples such as polymers, crystals or live cells.

​​

APPLICATIONS

PHOTOVOLTAIC

IMA™ provides spectrally and spatially resolved photoluminescence and electroluminescence images. It was successfully used to investigate spatial distribution of optoelectronic properties of CIS, CIGS, GaAs and perovskite solar cells.

NEURONAL IMAGING

Cellular and tissue imaging are limited by the number of label, or stains, that one could use to image and study many tissue type or molecular species simultaneously. Photon Etc.'s technology can remove these limits by using novel narrow band labels and its hyperspectral imager.

VIDEO

Photon Etc.'s Global Imaging Technology

This video shows the conceptual difference between hyperspectral global imaging and raster scan (line-scan, push-  broom). With global imaging, the gain in acquiring 3D data, 2D spatial and 1D spectral, is important since only a  few monochromatic images are required to cover  the complete spectral range where one needs to  take the full spectrum for each point or line in the image with other technologies.
