Pushbroom Imager – Along track scanner

Hyperspectral Pushbroom Imgaging systems (HSI-Pushbrooms) are highly integrated optoelectronic systems, which allow for the recording of hyperspectral lines: With an imaging spectrograph and a camera, a spectral image is recorded, which creates a spatial image in one dimension and shows the spectral axis in the second dimension.

HSI camera

These systems are particularly useful in the following application areas:

» imaging spectrography of moving objects
» spectral cuts in temporally varying samples

Spectroscopy with a high S/N ratio

Since within one exposure typically between 300 and 1000 spectra are recorded at the same time, the signal depth rises at similar lighting levels and measuring times in comparison to conventional spectrometer systems. That way, at similar costs, measuring results can be obtained, which are far superior to conventional fiber coupled linear spectrometer systems.
We offer a variation of different pushbroom systems for specific spectral ranges and different applications. All of these systems can be attached to a camera stand or mounted onto a microscope via a c-mount adapter.

As a versatile standard, we recommend the following system.

HSI-Pushbroom VIS/VNIR (500 nm – 1000 nm)

For combination color/chemical analyses in the visible and the near infrared spectral range.
It is especially suited for the examination of living tissue.
The system can be provided with an embedded LED lighting unit or without in order to allow for the integration into already existing systems.

Furthermore, we also produce the following variations for specialized claims . Please contact us for details.

HSI-Pushbroom VIS (380nm – 700nm)

This system is suitable for highly precise measuring applications in color analysis within the visible spectral range as well as UV-fluorescent applications.

HSI Pushbroom VNIR Extended (800nm – 1100nm)

This systems is suitable for the examination of different organic constituents in substances, tissue samples and other objects.
