Headwall and Holographix, a Headwall Group company, will be part of the US Pavilion at the Laser World of Photonics in Munich, Tuesday, June 27 - 30, 2023. Come see our custom optical solutions portfolio and capabilities, ranging from custom replicated and master diffraction gratings, microlens arrays, structured diffusers, and other wafer-level micro- and nano-optical solutions.

Cultural Heritage & Forensics

Hyperspectral imaging is extremely valuable to the field of artwork analysis and conservation. Using this non-invasive technique, researchers can ‘see the invisible.’ Even faded, damaged, altered/restored artifacts usually exhibit spectral differences.

See how Operation Night Watch by Headwall customer The Rijkmuseum in Amsterdam used hyperspectral imaging to assess the condition of Rembrandt's Night Watch so that an ideal treatment plan could be developed and implemented.


Hyperspectral imaging also affords forensic scientists unique advantages in non-invasive analysis of evidence, documents, artifacts, or other objects of interest. Forensic teams are able to more thoroughly evaluate crime scene evidence that can determine the uniqueness of these samples.

Counterfeit documents and goods that may appear genuine to the naked eye or to conventional imaging techniques can be examined and verified or exposed in a non-contact way.

Hyperspectral Imaging Application Center (HIAC)

In order to introduce hyperspectral Imaging to a wider range of users and their applications, Headwall and Visratek launched HIAC in Ankara, offering key hyperspectral imaging services for your success, like on-demand sample analysis, application feasibility studies and demonstrations, hands-on training, as well as system-integration services.
