Better Spectral Sensing and Chemical Imaging Results

Hyperspec® VNIR and Hyperspec® NIR

VNIR and NIR hyperspectral instruments Integrated commercial hyperspectral imagers for demanding spectral applications

Headwall Photonics Hyperspec family of integrated hyperspectral imaging sensors provide the foundation for utilizing hyperspectral imaging to achieve better spectral sensing and chemical imaging results for a range of mission-critical applications ranging from process monitoring to moving webs of product across conveyor lines to non-invasive medical imaging. These Hyperspec instruments are available as lens-based imagers or as multi-channel, multi-point fiber instruments.

Following up on the success of Headwall's Hyperspec VS15, VS25, and VS50 hyperspectral spectrographs, the new Hyperspec-VNIR and Hyperspec-NIR sensor models deliver on Headwall's vision of applying hyperspectral imaging capabilities to new markets and applications. By applying our optical engineering and hyperspectral imaging expertise gained through years of experience working with military and defense customers, Headwall's Hyperspec products offer unparalled imaging capabilities for a wide range of application needs for medical, life sciences, and industrial customers.

Both the Hyperspec-VNIR and Hyperspec-NIR models take advantage of Headwall's patented hyperspectral technology to generate aberration-corrected images characterized by 1-2 nanometer spectral resolution and unparalleled spatial resolution. These Hyperspec products are designed and engineered for application-specific performance and, in addition to fore-optics, include detectors and electronics that have been integrated, aligned, and tested for specific spectral regions and spatial resolution.

In order to achieve high signal-to-noise performance, all Hyperspec-VNIR and Hyperspec-NIR products utilize Headwall Photonics' world-renowned "original" holographic gratings that minimize stray light to achieve superior photometric accuracy particularly in dark background applications.
