Hyperspectral Imagers

Hyperspectral imaging, like other spectral imaging, collects and processes information from across the electromagnetic spectrum. The goal of such imaging is to obtain spectra for each pixel in an image, with the intent of finding objects, identifying materials, or detecting processes. Whereas the human eye sees color of only the visible light spectrum, in mostly three bands (long wavelengths – red, medium wavelengths – green, and short wavelengths – blue), hyperspectral imaging see a broader range of wavelengths extending beyond the visible. BaySpec builds hyperspectral sensors and processing systems for a vast array of potential and theoritical applications, including astronomy, agriculture, molecular biology, biomedical imaging, geosciences, physics, and surveillance.
