An Industrial Processing Tool
Short-wave infrared (SWIR) imaging with InGaAs-based cameras is well suited to nondestructive identification of materials, their composition, coatings and other characteristics. Imaging has long been used in industrial processes to measure, monitor, control or otherwise manage the production of goods. The challenge to the process designer is to develop a tool that captures vivid and measurable contrast of the monitored objects’ characteristics. The short-wave infrared band provides that...
