GRAND-EOS hyperspectral camera exploits Photon etc’s patented filtering technology based on volume Bragg grating (VBG). This technology is ideal for hyperspectral imaging. GRAND-EOS combines a hyperspectral microscopy system with a hyperspectral wide-field imaging platform, giving access to both micro and macro modalities with both VNIR (400-100 nm) and SWIR (900-2900 nm) spectral ranges. Both platforms, micro and wide-field, are designed for luminescence (photoluminescence or electroluminescence) and reflectance measurements and can accommodate broadband or monochromatic light source.
Our filtering technology allows the rapid acquisition of spectrally resolved high resolution images. While push-broom (line scan) systems based on dispersive spectrometers acquire a line at a time, devices based on VBGs allow global imaging. This means that with a VBG based technology it is possible to acquire complete monochromatic images at once, rather than line by line (or point by point). Since the camera captures the whole area in the field of view, it is possible to collect spectral and spatial information in real time, with the possibility of recording spectrally resolved videos.
Photon etc. PHySpec proprietary software controls the GRAND-EOS hyperspectral wide field microscopy system . It is easy to install on WIndows platforms and presents a friendly user interface. Its multithreaded architecture is a key feature when processing in parallel complex algorithms, acquiring, visualizing, importing and exporting data in real time. Data processing includes image stabilization, spatial filtering, statical tools,Image stabilization, spatial filtering, statical tools, spectrum extraction, data normalization, spectral calibration for the GRAND-EOS.
