SPECTRALINE Inc. announces the release of the ES100 Spectrometer with a continuous full spectra acquisition rate of 1320 Hz, and a single shot rate of 7 KHz. With this latest addition, full hyper spectral imaging of a 120 x 120 image can be obtained in as little as 11 seconds.

The primary advantage of the ES100 Hyper Spectral Imager over conventional hyper spectral imagers is that

  • full spectrum is obtained from each pixel of the image in
    0.7 ms, leading to very low smear in the spectral data.
  • In addition, the very fast acquisition (11 seconds) of the hyper spectral images allows for much shorter duration chemical reactions to be studied effectively.

Hyper spectral imagers are most frequently used for

  • combinatorial chemistry applications where the spectra from a large number of samples have to be obtained in an efficient manner.
  • to obtain the variation in surface properties (temperature, emissivity, composition, etc.) of objects such as hot metals, oil paintings, coatings, molten glass, etc.

The ES100 Spectrometer is converted to a hyper spectral imager with a 2D scanner mounter in front of it. The hyper spectral imager obtains spectral data at 160 wavelengths (between 1.2 and 4.8 microns) with an image resolution of 120 x 120 pixels.

The technical specifications of the ES100 and the 2-D scanner are given below.
