Hyperspectral Imaging and Sensing

Hyperspectral imaging captures detailed spectral information for each individual pixel in an image, rather than across a bulk sample.

Hyperspectral sensors typically capture infrared and visible light, with some instruments capturing the ultraviolet range. These signals can be interpreted using methods from conventional spectroscopy to yield a wealth of chemical information.

Hyperspectral imaging enables the distribution of certain chemicals, or other characteristic spectral signals, to be mapped across an image or a wide area. This has valuable applications in materials science, particularly when coupled with microscopy. Other applications include remote sensing for security or environmental studies.
