WHITE PAPER - COOLING SWIR SENSORS 
AN OVERVIEW
By Simon Lessard and Laura-Isabelle Dion-Bertrand

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. Multiple cooling technologies are available, each having certain benefits and drawbacks. In its new ZephIR line of SWIR cameras, Photon etc. uses a four stage thermoelectric (TE4) air-cooled system to enhance the sensitivity of its imaging sensors. In this white paper, a short introduction to thermoelectric (TE) cooling is presented, as well as a comparison with other available cooling methods.

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 the 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.
